[Completed] Pre-Production Patch Maintenance, Monthly – Thursday 20th October 2011 7 a.m. to 9 a.m.

[Completed] Pre-Production Patch Maintenance has been completed at 8:15 am, all test servers have been patched.

The next scheduled patch maintenance window is the 30th of October 2011, from 8 am to 12 pm. This is a production patch maintenance window, and a separate notification will be sent, as well as a separate blog posted.

On Thursday October 20th 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.

This should not affect any production services such as:

Personal and departmental file shares (on Alexandria and Merlin2)
Database applications: Cascade, FAMIS, Millennium, and Banner
Web services such as www.pugetsound.edu, cs.pugetsound.edu, and Moodle
Print Services

A follow up email and update to the blog will be posted once Pre-Production Patch Maintenance has been completed.
