The UT Austin mainframe will undergo planned maintenance early Sunday morning beginning shortly after 1:00 AM and lasting approximately 1 hour into Sunday morning. UT Direct,, Information Quest data warehouse, tn3270 mainframe access, and mainframe TID printing will be unavailable. Additionally, services using "fat cookie" EID authentication (e.g. numerous departmental services) will be impacted. If you are responsible for such a system, please notify affected parties as appropriate. Note: Systems not relying directly on the mainframe or fat cookie, such as the Public Network Authentication system, WebSpace, Webmail, Blackboard, and AEMS, will NOT be affected by this downtime. Please contact Robert Trent,, if you need additional information.
