SoE Storage Upgrade Weekend of January 11, 2020

Posted: 10:46:59, Monday, Dec 2, 2019   Expiration: 12:20:33, Sunday, Jan 12, 2020  

During the January maintenance window you will temporarily lose access to files stored on your network drive. See full news article for date and details.

MERIT, in collaboration with WCER Technical Services, is pleased to announce an upcoming network storage migration for the Maple fileserver. Our current storage solution has served us well over the years, but the hardware will be out of warranty soon and no longer supported. The migration means all existing data will be moved to a new storage device during the weekend of January 11. After the upgrade you will be able to continue to access your files as you do today.

During the maintenance windows you will temporarily lose access to files stored at these locations. If you need to work on files that reside on \Maple during this upcoming weekend, please copy the data locally to your desktop or laptop by 4:30 PM on Friday, January 10.

Thanks for your patience while we work to improve SoE’s network storage services. If you have any questions regarding this upgrade or where your data resides, please contact the MERIT helpdesk at helpdesk@education.wisc.edu for assistance.
