Student Affairs web server maintenance event

To all Student Affairs staff:

Between Saturday, July 11, 2015 9am – Sunday, July 12, 2015 5pm, web services on SAS4 and SAS3080 will be intermittently down in order to upgrade from Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2012.   This large maintenance window is necessary to complete a major project.  You will see from the list below that Student Affairs has many websites and most listed are configured with databases.

The reason for this maintenance window is that Windows Server 2003 is rapidly approaching End of Life (July 15, 2015), and Student Affairs IT personnel have been working fervently to prepare for the upgrade of the affected systems.

The services impacted are as follows:
