As part of CITs ongoing maintenance and upgrade of our central IT infrastructure we are replacing our primary disk array. This is a rather complicated data migration and will be accomplished in several stages.

Thursday, December 20: Virtual Lab

2:00am - We will be migrating the virtual lab to the new disk array. We expect this process to take several hours.

Thursday, December 27: Web, Wiki, myGeneseo, Database

4:00am - We will be migrating the data on data stores used for our website, myGeneseo, WebMail, Postgres & MySQL Databases. We expect all data migration to be completed by 6:00am and all services returned to normal.

Saturday, December 29: Geneseo Email

7:00am - All email receiving, delivery, and access will be down. We expect the maintenance will be completed no later than 12:00pm

Friday, January 4: Banner & Knightweb Migration

11:00pm - All banner and banner related services will be down. We expect to have all data migrations finished by 3:00am. This impacts many services including KnightWeb, Banner, AppWorx, myGeneseo, and LiquidOffice (eForms).

Friday, January 11:  Files & APM

6:00pm - Start Time Tentative We will be moving the disk tray used by Files to the new disk array. All File shares on \\files will be offline for several hours as we move the trays to the new storage controllers. The APM service also lives on these disks and will be offline during the move. Virtual Desktops and the Virtual Lab will also be offline during this move.
