WiscList Maintenance - Monday, June 1st, 7 am until 9 am

Posted: 01:00:00, Monday, Jun 1, 2009   Expiration: 04:30:00, Monday, Jun 1, 2009  

The WiscList service will be unavailable Monday, June 1st from 7am till 9 am for a scheduled application upgrade.

There will be no access to the administrative interface or the archives/forums interface during the outage. In addition, while no mail will be lost, mail sent to lists during the outage will be held for delivery when the service is re-established. All lists in the form @lists.wisc.edu or @lists.services.wisc.edu will be impacted.

The above outage will be used to upgrade the WiscList application. The upgrade will provide performance improvements and resolution to some outstanding issues.

Unfortunately, due to a vendor decision, the Safari web browser will no longer function with the WiscList administrative interface.

We have noted no other functional changes with the upgraded application, but as with any upgrade, please test any custom processes you have that may make use of the WiscList service in any way after the scheduled outage. This would include embedded html for the purposes of subscribing list members.

We apologize for any inconvenience the outage may cause.

Questions or comments can be directed to wisclist@doit.wisc.edu. For more information about the service please visit our service site at http://www.doit.wisc.edu/lists/wisclist/
