Data Centre Firewall Upgrade Project - IT outages scheduled for August 18

Due to issues on a previous attempt, Information Technology Services will be upgrading the main data centre firewall again on Sunday, August 18.. This upgrade is part of our continuing improvement of our network under the University key strategic initiative in Section 5.0
“Infrastructure and Planning”. 

​What is the impact?

There will be an outage impacting some critical business activities during the migration to the new firewall. Testing will be conducted prior to the implementation of the new firewall as well as after the migration to ensure success. 

This outage will affect access to Dalhousie resources and services hosted wholly or partially in the Dalhousie Halifax campus data centre
including:

  • Office 365 (Mail, OneDrive, ...)
  • Dal.ca, my.Dal, and DalOnline
  • Banner and other enterprise systems
