[Resolved] Banner, Famis and Basis Unavailable – 6/16/2010

Banner, Famis and Basis were unavailable from 6pm – 8pm on Wednesday June 16, 2010.   Minimal if no user disruption was experienced.  We believe this was the result of an operating system issue on the Tahoma Server which did not impact Cascade.   There was a brief disruption to Cascade as the server was rebooted.  All services recovered immediately following the reboot.

[Complete] Pre-Production Maintenance — Thursday June 17th, 7:00 AM – 9:00 AM

Update at 8:45AM:  All services are back online.
On Thursday June 17th from 7:00 AM – 9:00 AM all pre-production servers are to be patched.  This means that all test systems may be intermittently or entirely unavailable during this time.  Most users will not be impacted, as most users do not have access to preproduction servers.  Specifically, the following servers will be impacted:
  • lummi
  • pilchuck
  • shaw
  • decatur
  • squaxin
  • hope
  • mysqldev
  • VS0
