We are currently experiencing connectivity issues due to a hardware failure of the firewall. This is causing intermittent services outages. Network Engineers are currently working to alleviate this issue and prevent as many outages as possible.
We have planned a 30-minute maintenance for 5:00 pm today. There will be a major outage to services on the UWM network and an interruption to internet access for the majority of hosts on campus.
Again, this maintenance is scheduled to take place from 5-5:30 pm today. We appreciate your patience in this process. If you have any additional questions or concerns please call the UWM Help Desk at 414-229-4040.
