[Service Alert] SharePoint unavailability Saturday 6 May 2017 due to upgrade

Filed under: SharePoint, [Resolved], [Service Alert] — Sharon Steeples @ 2:11 pm

Our SharePoint service will be OFFLINE for approximately one to two hours on Saturday 6 May 2017. This is to allow us to install essential updates to the SharePoint platform software.

The SharePoint service should be considered ‘at-risk’ between 9:30am and 13:00pm on Saturday 6 May 2017, as the exact timing of the offline period is not yet certain. Users are requested to avoid using (and particularly editing) any SharePoint sites or SharePoint-hosted documents, during the ‘at risk’ period to prevent loss of unsaved data.

Services affected include:

  • All sites hosted in the https://edrm.essex.ac.uk domain (PG EAF, UG EAF, ESF, Agent Online Services, Reporting)
  • All sites hosted in the https://sp.essex.ac.uk domain
  • All personal mysites hosted in the https://mysite.essex.ac.uk domain.

We apologise for any inconvenience this will cause.

Notification will be made to users when the service is restored to full usability.
