Thank you to our users for their patience.

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 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 (and OneDrives) hosted in the https://mysite.essex.ac.uk 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.
