Electrical work over Easter may affect Blackboard

March 31, 2010

from the TVU Staff Intranet:

“All corporate services will be unavailable from 5pm on Thursday 1 April until 9am on Tuesday 6 April due to an essential electrical upgrade being undertaken by the Estates Department over the Easter period.

This involves a power outage for one of the main data centres at Ealing. Systems affected include the HR, Finance and Student Records systems and FoTA servers. It is intended that Blackboard, Email and BES (Blackberry services) will be run from an auxiliary supply but these services should be considered as ‘at risk ‘for the duration of the works period.”

Blackboard will definitely be unavailable late afternoon on Thursday 1 April, and again between 6.00 and 7.30 on the morning of Tuesday 6 April, while the servers are switched to an alternative power supply.

And if there is content on Blackboard to which it is essential you have access over Easter, you are strongly advised to download it before 1st April.
