OIT outage scheduled for fire alarm safety test

The Office of Information Technology has scheduled a planned outage starting at 4 a.m. on Sunday, May 19, to conduct the annual fire alarm safety test. The 12-hour exercise takes most technology services offline while fire systems are tested. This includes the UAF website, access to UAOnline and other systems.

OIT recommends setting up an alternate login to access your Google Apps @ UA email account during this outage. Simply set up a Google-side password before the outage. This password is different from the one you use to access Google Apps with an Internet browser such as Internet Explorer or Firefox.

More information is available online. For questions, contact the OIT Support Center at helpdesk@alaska.edu or 450-8300.
