[Completed] Pre-Production Patch Maintenance the 5th of April 2012, 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m.

The Pre-Production Patch Maintenance has been completed at 8:50 a.m., and all servers patched during this time period are back online. This Sunday the 8th of April is a scheduled Monthly Patch Maintenance Window, and a separate blog will be posted.

On Thursday the 5th of April 2012, from 7:00 AM – 9:00 AM most pre-production servers are to be patched. This means that most 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 these pre-production 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.
