Extended-Internet Link Maintenance Saturday and Sunday

Posted on September 18th, 2015 by Help Desk

The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDoT) will be performing maintenance on our primary Internet link on Saturday (9/19/2015) and Sunday (9/20/2015). Maintenance will begin at 8:30am Saturday and is expected to end Sunday afternoon. During this time we will be working on our backup link.

Our current backup link is roughly 1/10th the bandwidth we typically use. While we are anticipating increasing the backup bandwidth to match our primary link, the completion date for the upgrade is several weeks out. Pl ease limit streaming of music and video and do not use internet bandwidth tests during this outage. These services consume large amounts of data and significantly impact bandwidth.


The primary Internet link maintenance scheduled for this past weekend is still in effect. We have contacted CDoT (Colorado Department of Transportation) with a request for more information and will update the campus as we learn more.



We are once again on our primary internet link. If you are continuing to experience issues, please contact us at 719-255-3536.

Upgrade Completed – Exchange Upgrade Sunday (9-13-2015)

Posted on September 11th, 2015 by Help Desk

This Sunday (9-13-2015) between the hours of 8:00am and 5:00pm we will be implementing an Exchange upgrade. During this time, email will not be available for faculty and staff. Email sent to your email address will wait in a queue and then be delivered as the server becomes available again. Since the upgrade contains many steps, it is likely that the server may appear available several times during the upgrade window. It is recommended that you do not perform any critical work with your email until after 5:00pm as progress may be lost if the server becomes unavailable again.


Update: The upgrade for Faculty and Staff email has been completed. You will notice a new login screen when logging into email via the Outlook Web App (OWA). The log in screen now has a blue and white color scheme instead of the UCCS branded page you are used to. We will be working to change this log in screen to better reflect UCCS branding and will notify you when the change takes place. If you are having any issues with your email please call us at 719-255-3536
