Ongoing essential maintenance to computing services - Saturday/Sunday 21 & 22 November 2009 

What is happening?

As a continuation of the essential maintenance, started on Saturday 7th November, there will be a further outage to computing services on the weekend of the 21st and 22nd of November.The service outage will run from 12:30 on Saturday the 21st Nov until 21:00 that day. However, computing services will continue to be “at risk” throughout Sunday the 22nd November.

The only guaranteed services available over this weekend will be e-mail, the University website, e-journals, Web CT and Library Catalogue. PC classrooms will be operational, although no H drives will be available. All other services such as H drives, shared file store, printing/MFD service and all corporate applications will not be available.

All services provisioned from the Medicine domain at Foresterhill will continue to be unaffected.

What should you do?

If you intend to work you should be aware that most DIT services such as printing, file storage and most corporate applications will not be available and that you should save any work on a local storage regularly to minimise any work loss during this period.

As H drives will not be available via the PC classrooms students should store any data to USB drives/keys, if possible.

Please accept our apologies for the late notification and any inconvenience caused.

Should you have any concerns or queries please contact the DIT Service Desk:
