Upcoming Outages

 DEV.UMKC.EDU Upgrade and Content Replacement (6/26/2019 5:00:00 PM - 6/26/2019 6:00:00 PM)

The OS on DEV.UMKC.EDU will be upgraded and all DEV.UMKC.EDU content will be replaced by the content from WWW.UMKC.EDU. We understand that some users may be developing content on DEV.UMKC.EDU that is not ready to be live, and so does not exist on WWW.UMKC.EDU. In this case, we ask that users save local files that can then be moved back to DEV.UMKC.EDU once the update and testing is complete. Any edits made to DEV.UMKC.EDU between 6/26-7/10 should be backed up locally in order to save changes.

 Restart KC-ISIA-MYSQL1 (7/12/2019 6:00:00 PM - 7/12/2019 8:00:00 PM)

We need to restart MYSQL server on KC-ISIA-MYSQL1 after a change in database setting as part of converting database engine for one of the databases.

 Turnitin Outage (7/13/2019 3:00:00 AM - 7/13/2019 11:00:00 AM)

On July 13, 2019, Turnitin will take an 8-hour maintenance window from 3 a.m. until 11 a.m. During this time, users will be unable to submit items or grade. Please ensure any submission deadlines are adjusted to fall outside of this this outage window.

Current and Upcoming Change Management Notices

 Group policy cleanup and consolidation (9/5/2018 11:33:00 PM)

Starting now, and running through at least December, we will be deleting unused Group Policies, and merging and cleaning up existing group policies. This work is in preparation for upcoming Active Directory changes, and will be necessary to streamline the migrations that will be involved.

No significant changes are expected, but due to the nature of group policy editing, there is a small risk of error while editing and combining group policies.

Group policies which are not linked to any AD container will be deleted. There are a significant number of these discarded, and sometimes un-configured group policies, which we will delete to reduce the amount of work involved in the migration process.

 DEV.UMKC.EDU Upgrade and Content Replacement (6/26/2019 5:00:00 PM)

The OS on DEV.UMKC.EDU will be upgraded and all DEV.UMKC.EDU content will be replaced by the content from WWW.UMKC.EDU. We understand that some users may be developing content on DEV.UMKC.EDU that is not ready to be live, and so does not exist on WWW.UMKC.EDU.

Any edits made to DEV.UMKC.EDU between 6/26-7/10 should be backed up locally in order to save changes.

 Panopto Campus-wide Upgrade (6/28/2019 8:00:00 PM)

The Panopto client will be installed on all UMKC owned Windows and Mac workstations. Existing installations will be upgraded to version 6.0 to comply with Panopto's version requirements..

 WebEx Campus-wide Uninstall (6/29/2019 8:00:00 PM)

WebEx on all campus computers will be uninstalled as it is no longer needed.

 Default logon domain change (7/7/2019 10:00:00 PM)

On the night of July 7th, the default logon domain for UMKC managed Windows computers will change to UM-AD domain. The last regular user accounts will migrate July 1st to the UM-AD domain, so this will simplify logons. There will only be a few un-migrated accounts, and they will be given information on how to logon using the old UMKC-USERS domain. The logon screen background will also be reset since users will not need to remember to take special steps to select to logon to the UM-AD domain.

 Restart KC-ISIA-MYSQL1 (7/12/2019 6:00:00 PM)

We need to restart MYSQL server on KC-ISIA-MYSQL1 after a change in database setting as part of converting database engine for one of the databases.

 Database engine conversion for JSS (7/12/2019 11:59:00 PM)

We are converting the MySQL database for JSS from myisam to innodb in preparation for updates to JSS. This will require the restart of Tomcat on kc-isss-jss01. This will result in JAMF Pro being down for several minutes.

 The Starfish datapumps are being moved to a new server and being consolidated onto a single VM (7/16/2019 10:00:00 AM)

The starfish datapump is running on an older server OS. ISFS will provision a new VM with the latest OS and ISIA will reinstall the datapumps that feed Starfish on this new box. The two Starfish dataumps will also be consolidated onto a single VM.
