Following a replication error this afternoon, we have turned off the regularly scheduled replication cycle. A site-wide database error was introduced in the 1:15pm replication, and we will need to identify and correct the cause of the error before replication runs again. We anticipate having replication restored by late Thursday morning.

A new replication status page has been created that allows you to see the real time status of the Commonspot replication process. The status page can be found at:
The status page will indicate whether replication is in progress, if any errors were experienced recently, or when the last successful replication ran.
Replication is the automated process that copies content from the authoring (cms) server to the production (www) servers. Included in the status page is an in depth explanation of replication and the server setup, as well as some troubleshooting tips and how to know when to expect your content to replicate.

We're planning on installing the Commonspot 4.6 Service Pack 1 release on Monday, 2/13. The installation will require that we disable authoring access to the cms server for an hour or so, and stop the automated content replication process from cms to www while the servers are being updated.

The Webpublishing team has created a new RSS feed to the "What's New" page. When submitting content for publication, check the "What's New" checkbox for any new content that may be relevant to all site administrators (calendar updates, student/faculty profiles, etc.). This will give everyone more linking opportunities and information about updated content.
