There is a possibility that users may experience a couple of brief disruptions to SharePoint Services this Friday (21st December 2018) – morning/early afternoon.

This is to accommodate some essential maintenance work to prepare the core services of ECF, ESF, AOS, and PG/UG EAF to be compatible with the incoming 2019 calendar year.

During the maintenance work, we do not anticipate any prolonged period of service outage – only a few minutes on any occasion.

Services affected include:

  • All sites hosted in the domain (PG EAF, UG EAF, ESF, Agent Online Services, Reporting)
  • All sites hosted in the domain
  • All personal mysites (and OneDrives) hosted in the domain

We apologise for any inconvenience this will cause. However, it is anticipated that the impact on users, with this period being in the lead-up to the Christmas vacation, will be minimal.

Notification will be made to users when the period of maintenance is complete.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to all our users.
