To reduce the risk of potential problems resulting from the electrical work taking place early Saturday Morning on the McNichols campus, all McNichols servers will be powered down.
TitanConnect, Blackboard, Internet Access, all udmercy.edu web services and TitanNet will be shut-down around 2:30 AM and brought back up within 3 hours after the power has been restored. Critical servers will be brought online first and will be available soon after the power has been restored. It may take up to three hours for all systems to be brought back online.
During this outage, incoming e-mail may be queued on the sender's e-mail system or bounced back to the original sender depending on how the sender’s e-mail servers are configured to handle messages to downed sites.
