Planned Outage this Sunday, August 6

Posted: 18:00:00, Wednesday, Aug 2, 2006   Expiration: 18:00:00, Saturday, Aug 5, 2006  

On Sunday, August 6, DoIT will upgrade the code on its EMC Enterprise Storage servers. This will require an outage for most of the large systems that are hosted on the DoIT platform.

Systems will start coming down at 5:00 a.m. on August 6 and will remain down until the upgrade is complete. We expect that the upgrade will be complete and all systems back in full operation by 11:30 a.m. Services affected by this outage are:

  • AANTs tool suite
  • Bucky Backup - TSM
  • ISIS
  • SFS
  • FASTAR
  • KRONOS
  • WiscMail
  • WiscCal
  • My WebSpace
  • My UW-Madison
  • InfoAccess
  • Sun kiosks
  • Cypress
  • WiscVPN
A few services will remain in operation during the outage, including Learn@UW and the LDAP directory services.

If you have questions about this scheduled outage, please contact the DoIT Help Desk at 264-HELP (4357).
