The database server used by Commonspot is scheduled to be upgraded on Thursday morning (3/25/10), beginning at 6 am. During the upgrade, Commonspot pages that rely on dynamically-generated content from the database will not be displayed. We expect that the upgrade process will take less than an hour.

We're planning an application server upgrade on the cms server on Thursday (10/1) morning. The upgrade is scheduled to start at 8am and should be completed by mid-morning, Authoring access will be unavailable during the upgrade. Sorry for the short notice on this system upgrade - the new version of the application server should improve the performance and server stabiity issues we've been seeing in recent weeks.

The Commonspot database server will be offline for maintenance for a brief period of time on Wednesday evening, Jan. 14th. We expect the actual outage to be for 15 minutes or less. Commonspot pages will not be served from the cms or www web servers during the outage. Commonspot authoring will be disabled on the cms server between 9 and 11pm on Wednesday, to avoid interference with the database server maintenance process.

We've experienced a few problems on the www Web servers due to network connectivity issues. Periodically, the web servers aren't able to connect to Commonspot's database server, resulting in error messages displayed on www.scu.edu. A software patch is scheduled to be installed on 1/30 at 7pm to resolve this issue.
