Blackboard Down for Maintenance from 10 pm Fri. 9/10...

Full Title: Blackboard Down for Maintenance from 10 pm Fri. 9/10 to 1 am Sat. 9/11The UMBC Blackboard server will be down for three hours of maintenance starting this Friday, September 10, at 10 pm. This maintenance is required in order to fix an error that occurs during the submission of quizzes and surveys. DoIT has worked with Blackboard over the past week to determine the cause of this error. Earlier this week DoIT was provided a resolution which has been installed and tested on the Bb test server. Unfortunately this resolution will cause the following known issue to occur: any attached file with either a semicolon (;) or a pound sign (#) in the filename will result in an error when a user tries to access the file. The workaround for this issue is to avoid using those characters when naming files. We appreciate your patience and apologize for any inconvenience that this down time may cause.
