Blackboard System Outage

Sunday, July 19, 2015 from 7am-1pm Blackboard Learn will be unavailable to students, faculty, and staff, so VCCS ITS can perform a critical upgrade to the Oracle database that supports the Learning Management System (LMS).  The date and time above have been chosen so as to make the least amount of impact on students enrolled in summer classes. This update is unavoidable, as it will apply a technical upgrade that is required for Blackboard Learn to continue to run effectively and be fully supported by both Oracle and Blackboard.

System Outage July 11-12

The SIS and HRMS production systems will be unavailable from 9:00pm on Saturday, July 11th until 10:00am on Sunday, July 12th in order to apply two critical fixes in support of Financial Aid Pell Packaging/Repackaging and SEVIS.

The Online Admission Application, mobile SIS and the VA Education Wizard will also be unavailable from 9:00 pm on Saturday, July 11th until 10:00 am on Sunday, July 12th. In addition, interfaces to WES, PMIS, TMS, NelNet and McCann will be inactive. WES, PMIS, TMS and NelNet will all follow their normal operational schedules, but updates will not reach SIS or HRMS until the outage is over. Applying the maintenance to both SIS and HRMS assures that the applications and the data models for biographical data remains consistent between SIS and HRMS.

System Outage June 20-21

The SIS and HRMS production systems will be down from 12:01 am on Saturday, June 20 until 2:00 pm on Sunday, June 21 to allow ITS staff to implement the SIS/HR Split. This will impact all the systems listed below.

SIS/HRMS, Online Admission Application, Virginia Education Wizard, SIS Archive, all integrations including WES (WorkForce Enterprise System), TMS (Tuition Management System), PMIS (Personnel Management Information System), SIS Mobile, ImageNow, and DMV (Division of Motor Vehicles).

Please do not submit batch processes to run during the outage window.  Any batch process running June 19, 2015 at 11:00 PM will be forcibly stopped.
