Testing Our Services

One of the updates that will (hopefully) happen over the holiday break is a hardware and software upgrade to the primary web service. This should increase system performance and also applies some updates to the central system we use for managing all of the content of the website (Microsoft Content Management Server). To perform this upgrade, we needed to ensure that all of the services currently in use on the primary web server would remain working once we switched over to the new machine. I just completed that testing, begun several weeks ago, this afternoon with the production of a script we can follow in the future for testing other upgrades. Just to give a sense of the scope of the services that are going to potentially be affected, here’s a list of all the stuff we tested in preparing for this update.
