Blackboard Maintenance Scheduled for 3/15, 6-9 p.m.

DoIT has been working with Blackboard on an issue that requires maintenance and a restart of our main production server this Friday, March 15, at 6 to 9 p.m.

Normally, we would wait until our regular, weekly scheduled maintenance of 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Fridays. However, since we want to continue working with the same Bb support team, and the campus will be starting Spring Break, we want to get an early start to implement and begin monitoring the fix.

In addition, we will be applying the latest bundles and patches that we would have done on March 29, the first Friday after Spring Break (also Good Friday).

No matter what, we need to do this maintenance on March 15, but if the earlier, 6 p.m. start presents a significant disruption, please send email to fritz@umbc.edu.

Thank you,
