Daylight Saving Time Affects Systems and Applications
Daylight Saving Time (DST) has been increased by four weeks this year,
starting March 11 and ending November 4. This change, part of the Energy
Policy Act of 2005, will affect date and time processing functions in
computers and applications. Because of this, some systems and applications
that involve logs, calendaring, synchronization, timestamps, mail, and
scheduling may fail to use the correct local times during the expanded
four-week period. Learn more about what this means and ways to address
the issue on the ITS
about Medical Center Network Upgrade Project
The Medical Center Network Upgrade project is under way and will continue
for the next three months. Data network equipment in communications
closets throughout the Medical Center will be replaced to provide additional
reliability and enhanced security. The work will be scheduled during
overnight hours and will only affect a limited area during each outage.
Look for "Network Alert" notices that will be posted one week
before scheduled work. Details are available to Medical Center faculty
and staff at http://intrashare.urmc.rochester.edu/MCNET/default.aspx.
