Exchange SAN Failover Testing – June 28 2009, 06:00 – 10:00

On Sunday, June 28th 2009 between 6:00am and 10:00am, UBC Exchange customers will experience up to two short service interruptions where they will be unable to send or receive messages through Exchange. Each service interruption during this scheduled maintenance window should last less than one minute in length.

Although the impact is expected to be minimal, there is a chance that service may be unavailable for an extended period of time as a result of important storage failover testing. Please be aware that service may be intermittent until the end of our standard maintenance window at 10:00am.

All incoming messages will be queued and delivered when the Exchange service is restored. Anyone using a mobile device or Outlook Web Access to check their Exchange email while it is unavailable will also be impacted until the Exchange service is back online.

Departmental Exchange Administrators will be notified and asked to pass along notification to affected individuals.
