Server maintenance on Saturday evening (Saturday 11th November) - Exchange email and VMware VDI desktops

This Saturday evening IT Services are planning to carry out server maintenance work that will affect availability of the following services:

Exchange Email Services - This work is to upgrade storage components and to install windows updates. Although this work should be non-disruptive, except for the occasional re-authentication requests for Outlook users as services are migrated between hosts, services should be considered 'at risk' during the work.

VMware VDI desktops (bluQube, AltaHR, WebAbsences, Discoverer etc). - This work is to move the two server VMs that comprise this service to a new cluster. This work will be disruptive: These services will be taken offline for the duration of the work.

The following VDI Desktops will not be available during this work:

Agresso Excelerator
AltaHR
Apex
Bizagi Studio
bluQube
Oracle Dev Studio
Discoverer
EditOn Pro
PFact
SITS
ITS Desktop
ITS Firewall Admin

This work is due to start at 17.00 on Saturday and is expected to be completed by 21.00 but affected services should be considered 'at risk' until 22.00.

We will keep service news updated on progress, and I will circulate another message to confirm that the work is completed.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
