Reminder: Second Butrovich power and data generator outage scheduled for May 22

On Saturday, May 22, UAF Facilities Services will be conducting a planned maintenance power shutdown to the entire Butrovich Building to prepare electrical systems for the integration of a new backup generator for the Butrovich Data Center (BDC).  The electrical system must be completely powered down to ensure safety for the technicians doing the work.

This planned maintenance shutdown will mean that UA enterprise data systems served out of the BDC will be offline and unavailable during outage. Those systems include Banner and related applications (TEM/Workflow, Vista Plus, App Manager, Degree Works), and OnBase.

The outage is planned for the following timeframe:

Saturday, May 22: Starting at 00:01 AM and scheduled to conclude at 10:00 PM

In addition to these IT services, the University of Alaska Fairbanks main campus, including the Butrovich Building, and all UAF community campuses and outreach centers will lose on-campus internet access during the planned maintenance shutdown. UA and UAF users will also lose access to VPN services and any shared file servers hosted in the BDC. 

Systems and services not hosted in the BDC should be available, such as email, Internet services for UAA and UAS and their affiliated community campuses, etc.
