With assignments due and final exams, we know December is a very busy month for you. So, as we’ve done during previous final exam periods, this month we’re forgoing our regularly scheduled maintenance of most ICT services.
This means PAWS, U of S Course Tools (Blackboard) and many other ICT services will continue to run as usual throughout this month’s scheduled maintenance.
We do, however, still need to go ahead with regular maintenance on a number of services which run on Microsoft Windows since they require essential patches and updates that cannot wait for a later date.
This reduced maintenance work will be performed during the evening of Wednesday, December 11th, from 10:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m. the next morning.
During that time, the following services will be unavailable:
- File services (Cabinet, Jade, Bermuda, TangoWeb (SSAM/gsis), WinWeb (FMD), Datashare)
- Print services (Green, CPAS)
- Database hosting (SQLserver only)
PAWS, Sirius, Unifi, U of S Course Tools (Blackboard), etc. will remain uninterrupted during this maintenance.
Please note: The Windows servers associated with email, file storage (Cabinet) and printing (CPAS) will be patched after 11:00 pm — after the Murray Library has closed for the evening — in order to accommodate students who may be studying there.
