Time: Thu 5/5/2022, 18:30 - 20:00
Affected: network access university, UMG, GWDG; WLAN at university campus; services of GWDG
Impact: multiple disconnections

In close cooperation with us, the manufacturer of the Perimeter firewall was able to find another error that leads to disconnections in high-availability operation. In order to fix this, another update of the software is urgently required. This is scheduled to take place on Thursday at 18:30, and may result in the termination of numerous ongoing connections between the university campus network and the GWDG services and the Internet.
