Upcoming Blackboard Service Interruption Possible - 01/20/2018 - 12:01am - 04:00pm

Jan. 19, 2018

Subject: Reminder: Upcoming Datacenter Maintenance - Service Interruption Possible Date: Saturday, January 20, 2018 Time: 12:01am - 04:00pm EDT Services: Clients with Server(s) at our Northern Virginia Datacenter 2.

This is a reminder that on Saturday, January 20, 2018, Blackboard will be performing scheduled infrastructure maintenance to replace our primary and secondary core switches which will reach end-of-life in March 2018. While we anticipate no interruption in service as a result of the work, we cannot entirely rule out periods of intermittent connectivity as network traffic adjusts, or a quick restart of services on a few client systems if warranted. We will make all efforts to keep any service disruption within the window to a minimum.
