2014.06.19 Major Network Maintenance (2014 Refresh)

One of the last stages of Information Technology's 2014 Network Refresh project is physically moving our servers from the old equipment to their new home.
Network Operations will begin the migration at 6PM tonight and are expected to finish by 12AM. See update below!
This process will disrupt access to all CalArts servers as they are migrated.  This includes (but is not limited to):
  • Campus Internet Access (wired and wireless)
  • CalArts.edu (and associated websites)
  • REDCAT.org
  • Colleague (including Synoptix)
  • VPN Access
  • School and Departmental Fileshares
Off-campus access to CalArts Email will not be affected.
Affected services will be either entirely unavailable or unreliable during this timeframe.  We appreciate your patience and apologize for the short notice.
Please contact IT and cait@calarts.edu or x7887 if you have any questions or concerns.

June 26th Update:  

Network Operations will be performing the next steps of the 2014 Network Refresh transition tomorrow, June 27th, through Saturday, June 28th.  Our schedule is as follows:

  • June 27th: 5PM - 12AM
  • June 28th: 5PM - 12AM

During this time all services referenced above will be either unreliable or entirely unavailable.  Again, we thank you for your ongoing patience and apologize for the late notice.


Network Operations successfully completed the migration over June 27th and 28th.  There will be one more final maintenance window in August, when we will be able to migrate the last system to the new environment.  That schedule has yet to be created, however, and we will be sending out notices when we are able to build a schedule.
