System outage on July 25 12:00am-10:00am (PST)
Dear summer teaching faculty
Please be advised that on July 25th ALL power and services for CSU, Chico will be brought down for maintenance. This includes the Portal and Bb Learn. Students (and instructors) will not be able to access any of your materials, instructions or interactive areas of your course in Blackboard Learn during this maintenance window.
Work is scheduled to install a new battery backup system in the campus data center. To ensure safety for the electricians, the high voltage electrical panels in Butte Hall 4th floor will require a full shutdown during this maintenance window. Some services such as Exchange email and telephone service will be available. Power will not be interrupted in other buildings on campus. On-campus workstation login and wired and wireless Internet access will function except for Butte Hall. Restoration of all computing and network services is expected by 10am.
Upgrades to Bb Learn will be applied before the shut-down and will be available when the power returns. Plan for Bb Learn to be unavailable for the first 10 hours of the 25th by not setting deadlines or due dates during this time. Also, you may find it helpful to give students a message that all CSU, Chico services and access to Learn will be interrupted during this time.?
