For the night owls out there, please note that our lynda.com online learning resource will be unavailable from 2:00 – 3:00 AM Friday, September 19, while web server capacity improvements are implemented. (What’s that you say? You haven’t heard of lynda?? Visit go/lyndainfo to see what you’re missing.)
We’re seeing an abnormally high level of traffic between our storage systems across data centers. The result of this is the user community will occasionally see slow data transfers. E.g. Opening or saving files to the network, retrieving email, mounting shared drives, etc… We expect to reach normal levels within the next 24 hours.
This Sunday morning between 8 and 10 am ET we will be upgrading the Monterey Institute of International Studies website (http://www.miis.edu) from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7.
The upgrade will take approximately one hour during which the site will not be usable.
There will also be a short period of under one minute during the upgrade when file assets on the other Drupal 7 sites may not be available. These sites include:
- Davis Fellows for Peace: http://www.davisfellowsforpeace.org
- Davis Projects for Peace: http://www.davisprojectsforpeace.org
- Davis United World Scholars Program: http://davisuwcscholars.org
- Middlebury Museum of Art: http://museum.middlebury.edu
- Secure Forms for Middlebury: https://forms.middlebury.edu
- Secure Forms for MIIS: https://forms.miis.edu
We do not anticipate any impact on other services.
Remote-Learner, our Moodle host, will be updating our Moodle instance on Friday, August 29th, at 11:59pm. We expect the site to be available by Saturday, August 30th, at 2am.
