Mainframe - Outage for 2013 DoIT to DOA Migration (5 am on Friday, 10/18/13, to 6am on Monday)

Mainframe services will be unavailable on Friday, October 18th, while the functionality is migrated from the DoIT platform to the Division of Enterprise Technology (DET) mainframe. Full functionality should be restored by 6 AM on Monday (10/21/13). Other than the down times, end-users should not notice any change in service.

Please be aware that mainframe services will be down all day on Friday October 18 starting at 5:00am to allow migration from the DoIT platform to the DET mainframe. The outage and the migration process is expected to take about 24 hours, followed by configuration work and testing. Services are expected to resume Saturday mid-morning for customer validation testing.

By no later than 6am Monday morning 10/21 we expect all services to be running normally again.

Customers should not notice any difference in services after the migration is complete.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. In the long term we expect that this move will make mainframe services more cost effective and reliable.

Scheduling details and status will be documented in the change record for this event, CR# 33121.

Thank you.

DoIT Mainframe service team
