Ewing Building Network Migration
The Ewing Building will be migrated across to the new network on Tue 17 and Wed 18 Oct. The following areas will be affected at the times below:
- Tue 17 Oct, 07:00 – 12:00 | Basement and ground floor
- Tue 17 Oct, 13:00 – 18:00 | First floor west
- Wed 18 Oct, 07:00 – 18:00 | First floor east
You may find your device becomes active prior to the completion time. If this does occur, your network service should still be considered ‘at risk’ up until 18:00. Whilst the replacement of the network equipment should be completed on the day of migration, some devices (such as printers etc.) may need further configuration once the network equipment has been replaced, therefore it is possible that work to update such devices is carried out on subsequent days.
There will be no access to the wired and wireless network (inc internet access) in these areas at the indicated times. Migrations will affect all client devices such as PCs and laptops, printers, building management systems etc. connected to the University network.
Follow the guidance below to re-establish your computers’ wired connection afterward:
- Unmanaged computers
- Managed computers (e.g. Staff Desktop)
Take no action for these devices post-migration. They should automatically connect to the new wired network but may need to be rebooted if they have been switched on throughout the change.
If you need a refresh on how to connect your device to the eduroam, which is already available in various locations around campus, visit the Get Connected website page for students and staff.
Reporting issues/getting help
Please contact the IT Service Desk via Help4U or by phone on extension 88000 once the work is complete.
All Ewing Building activities will run on the University’s new, next-generation network following the successful migration.
