This maintenance window is being planned to allow for the migration of the campus border firewalls to next-generation platforms to increase campus network capacity and security.

ImageNow Migration

Update: this maintenance has been moved 2 hours earlier to 12:00 noon Friday, December 18th.

Scheduled Downtime: Beginning 12:00 Noon Friday, December 18
Services Impacted: ImageNow
Anticipated Availability: 8:00 AM Wednesday, December 30th

We will begin the migration of ImageNow 6.6 to Perceptive Content 7.1.2 starting at 12:00 Noon on Friday December 18th.  Services are anticipated to be restored by Wednesday December 30th at 8 AM.

We will be taking ImageNow down at 12:00 Noon Friday December 18th to begin the database migration to a secure server, followed by an upgrade of ImageNow 6.6 to Perceptive Content 7.1.2.  All ImageNow services will be offline during the migration and upgrade processes.   There could be short periods where ImageNow is available on Friday afternoon, but please do not log in or perform any scanning or routing of documents.  If we encounter difficulties in this process, we could be forced to revert to the original database, and you would lose any activity performed.  Enterprise Applications staff will be updating your clients as we come back online, beginning Wednesday December 30th.   There is the potential for services to be out until January 4th.   We do realize the importance of this system to the University and are taking steps to minimize the outage.  If the Friday outage is inconvenient for you or your staff, please contact Mike Wood at 898-4577 immediately.
