So outages can be expected today (1/5) up through and including Thursday (1/7).
The migration effort for moving applications and jobs off of the UISappsrvprod1 server was completed last week.
We decided to delay the shutdown of this server until after the Summer 2015 grade submission deadline of noon on Wednesday (7/29/2015) – i.e. today.
So at 1 p.m. today, this server will be shutdown. It’ll be left in this state for a yet to be determined period – to handle any unforeseen issues that might occur.
Apeksha has headed to the hospital for delivery – we should be hearing good news shortly.
