OIT Maintenance Window

Policy for the OIT Maintenance Window

OIT is responsible for a large number of servers, network switches, and other devices that are important to the operation of Washington College. In order to be able to properly maintain the equipment, OIT must have scheduled opportunities for performing updates and maintenance on the equipment, i. e. a “maintanence window.”

The OIT maintanence window will be scheduled for the hours between 4:30 and 7:00 AM on the first and third Wednesdays of each month. It is not anticipated that all of the scheduled opportunities will be used; however, it is good practice to maintain the schedule so that the college community will be aware of the possibility of interruptions of the services that OIT provides. Except in the case of emergencies, the campus will be notified by e-mail in advance of windows that will definitely be used.
