VuFind Outage to Expand Disk

Wednesday, August 21, 2013 - 9:43pm

The "I-Share" portion of VuFind is going offline during the next hour so that the underlying disk volume can be expanded. "Local" catalogs will still be available.

This maintenance will allow CARLI staff to add new functionality to VuFind.

The UIUC campus networking staff are upgrading routers on campus this weekend and next weekend.

Starting Voyager Migration to Linux

Friday, July 12, 2013 - 5:09pm

We are getting ready to start the Voyager migration from Solaris to Linux. Most services will be online during this work, but we are about to take Voyager Cataloging and Acquistions Clients offline to make sure records are not updated while we are reindexing data. I will post another message when the migration is complete.

Voyager Linux Migration Friday, July 12th

Wednesday, June 19, 2013 - 4:22pm

At 5PM on Friday, July 12th, we will start the process of migrating our Production Voyager system from the Solaris operating system to Linux. This migration mainly involves rebuilding the Voyager keyword indexes on the new Linux server. During this migration, we will turn off access to Voyager Cataloging and Voyager Acquisition staff clients to avoid any record edits/updates during the index rebuild process. If you try to connect to Cataloging or Acquisitions clients during the maintenance, you will receive a message that "Voyager is not available." All other Voyager services (including Voyager Circulation, VuFind I-Share and local catalogs, Classic WebVoyage catalogs, and the I-Share Reports Server) will be online and available during this event. We will restore access to Cataloging and Acquisitions clients on the new Voyager Linux system as soon as the index rebuilds are completed on Saturday, July 13th or Sunday, July 14th.

Production Voyager Outage

Friday, June 14, 2013 - 2:55pm

All Production Voyager services (including VuFind and Classic WebVoyage) will be offline Friday, June 21st at 5pm through Sunday night, June 23rd. The Reports Server will be available throughout the weekend with data as of 5pm on Friday, June 21st. The Reports Server will be current again when all Voyager services come back online on Sunday night, June 23rd, and will continue to be updated normally after that.

No Report Server Downtime June 21st

Thursday, June 13, 2013 - 3:09pm

In my announcement yesterday, I mentioned that the Reports Server data would be static for two weeks after we migrate Production Oracle to Linux. This would impact year-end fiscal reporting that libraries need to run, so we have developed a new plan that will allow the Reports Server to continue working as normal after we migrate Production Oracle to Linux.

All Production Voyager services (including VuFind and Classic WebVoyage) will be offline Friday, June 21st at 5pm through Sunday night, June 23rd. The Reports Server will be available throughout the weekend with data as of 5pm on Friday, June 21st. The Reports Server will be current again when all Voyager services come back online on Sunday night, June 23rd, and will continue to be updated normally after that.

Voyager Outage Starting 5PM Friday, June 21st

Wednesday, June 12, 2013 - 3:39pm

Starting at 5PM on Friday, June 21st, we will power down our Production Voyager servers and migrate the Oracle databases from their current Solaris server to a new Linux server. All Voyager services (including VuFind and Classic WebVoyage) will be offline during this event. We plan to have everything up and running again Sunday night (June 23rd).

For the two weeks following this Oracle migration, data in our Reporting server (on Solaris) will be static while we build a new Reporting server (on Linux).
