SWOCA’s weekly maintenance window is 4:30PM-7:30PM every Friday. Service impacting maintenance to key services, such as Student Information and E-mail, are normally delayed until after 5:00 PM to minimize inconvenience.
This week’s maintenance window has VPN & ACS services are slated for an upgrade. Since VPN is relied upon after hours, we are moving this upgrade up to begin at 2 PM. Users connected to VPN will be able to continue to use the VPN service during the maintenance, but new connections will not be able to connect once the maintenance is started.
This maintenance also will impact districts who use SWOCA for switch programming authentication. Authentications to network hardware will also be intermittent after 2 PM today.
We expect the VPN/ACS work to be completed by 5 PM, and then our normal maintenance window will start.
