SAIT Maintenance Window – March 2, 2013

In efforts to increase the reliability and recoverability of our services for Student Affairs, SAIT is planning a maintenance window on March 2, 2013 beginning at 7:00 am.  We are expecting to have all items on this project list completed by approximately 7:00 pm on the same day.  Throughout the day there will be intermittent interruptions of the following services:


       Printing (to IKON, etc.)

       File services ((H)ome, (U)nit, Division (S)hared, etc.

       Web Access


UCS based email services will NOT be impacted.


As you can see by the length of time required to make these modifications, we cannot use our normal maintenance window (Monday thru Friday between the hours of 4:00 am and 7:00 am).  Additionally, making changes incrementally over several days is not an option because of the dependencies of each change to the others that must be made.


During the planned outage, we will share strategic information on our blog at: http://studentaffairsblogs.psu.edu/technology/


As always, if you have questions or concerns relating to this plan, please contact our Service Desk.

Thank You.

New Penn State Marks with ‘Student Affairs’

Student Affairs Colleagues-


As we indicated a few weeks ago, new Penn State Marks with ‘Student Affairs’ are now available for use. Please note that the Marks are now located in a new, easy-access location on ‘Division Shared’:


S:Penn State Marks


We have also simplified how the Marks are organized to make it easier to access the version you need. ‘S:Penn State Marks’ contains the following folders:


‘eps_for_InDesign’ – these Marks are for use in Adobe InDesign


‘tif_for_Word_etc’ – these Marks are for use in Word and other Microsoft applications (Publisher, Powerpoint, etc.)


‘Web_only’ – these Marks are for Web use only and cannot be used in print publications (quality will be too low for printing)


Please begin transitioning your old ‘Division of Student Affairs’ Marks now in your legacy publications and begin using these Marks for any new publications.


On a related note, we will be transitioning unit website headers to ‘Student Affairs’ over the next few weeks.


Thank you
