Windows 10 Rollout Launch Information

Microsoft is on course to release Windows 10 later this summer, and instead of dropping the OS upgrade simultaneously across all systems, they’ll be going for a roll-out-style launch. Devices running Windows 7 Service Pack 1 or Windows 8.1 will be able to upgrade for free once the launch occurs, followed by other devices later in the cycle:

Wireless Upgrade 3/15/2015

There will be a wireless code upgrade happening this Sunday 3/15 on the main campus wireless network from 12:00pm to 8:00pm. During this time UCSD-Protected, UCSD-GUEST, UCSD-SCRM, Eduroam, and SDSC networks will experience intermittent outages.

The ResNet network is NOT part of the upgrade and should not be experiencing any outages. If you experience internet connectivity issues on the ResNet network during or after this upgrade, please contact the ACMS Help Desk.

[RESOLVED] Network Outage

Early this morning, we became aware of a campus wide outage affecting ResNet, UCSD-PROTECTED as well as other on and off campus network resources. Our technicians were able to identify the source of the outage as a problem with the network backbone that provides connectivity to UCSD. The problem was resolved around 2:15am.

We apologize for the inconvenience, if you are still experiencing connectivity issues please call, email, or stop by the Help Desk for assistance.
