ITS Maintenance Outages: Storage/SHARED1 migration begins December 28

Posted: 11:29:57, Monday, Dec 14, 2015   Expiration: 11:29:57, Wednesday, Jan 6, 2016  

ITS continues its migration of network storage volumes to new servers with SHARED1 (S-drive) on December 28-30. SHARED1 will become READ-ONLY beginning at 5:00 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 28 and extending through Wednesday, Dec. 30. During this time, if you need to make changes to a file on the S-drive, you will need to save the file to another location until migration is complete.

The new SHARED1 should be available for read-write access after 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 30; however, file migration may continue until 7:00 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 4. Files migrate from oldest to newest, so there is a chance that your newest files will not be in the new SHARED1 until Monday morning.

Changes in effect after the SHARED1 (S-drive) migration beginning December 30*:

•    Shortcuts to files on SHARED1 will need to be updated.
•    Links embedded within files and processes between files, such as mail merge in Word using Excel data, may need to be updated as well.
•    SHARED1 will be accessible via mobile device and from off-campus through Storage-on-the-Go at www.uwplatt.edu/go/storage or through a virtual desktop.
•    Mac users will need to map the new drives; see instructions at Online Storage - Map a drive via SMB (Mac OS X) .

*After December 30, if you are unable to access your data on the S-drive, please restart your computer.  If issues persist, contact the ITS Help Desk at helpdesk@uwplatt.edu or 608.342.1400.

*After January 4, if it appears files are missing from your S-drive, it may be that your data is still being migrated. If you have concerns, please contact the ITS Help Desk at helpdesk@uwplatt.edu or 608.342.1400.
