What to know during this time:

  • Network response may appear to slow down while the primary DNS and DHCP server is patched.
  • Applications which depend on our Oracle or MySql databases will be unavailable, including Lyris and HIPAA training.
  • Data files from FRS feeds will also be offline while that server is patched.
  • There will be a brief outage of the primary web server as the IP address is moved from the old device to the new one.  This will affect http://www.med.unc.edu/ and the other sites for which it is responsible, such as help.med.unc.edu, support.med.unc.edu and sai.unc.edu.
