AU IT, AU Finance and AU Estates Projects and Development will carry out one of four planned service windows for this year from Saturday 20 April at 00:01 to Sunday 21 April at 23:59.

During this window, they will carry out system updates, network changes and tests. As a result, there will be periodic disruptions in service.

We need to perform this essential maintenance work to ensure that our systems (IT, electricity and so on) run smoothly, reliably and securely.

The IT service disruptions will happen at all AU locations.

Of course, you can still work on your computer, though you won’t be able to connect to central IT systems, shared drives or AU’s network.

What will be affected?

Some of the services that will be disrupted include financial management systems,, SOA, GitLab and a number of web servers.
