Banner/Self-Service Outage

This Sunday, February 5, 2012, we will be migrating our disk storage for Banner and Blackboard Learn from the current Clarion SAN to the new NetApps SAN.  This outage will start at 8:00am and will continue until they are finished.  We do not know exactly how long this will take, but all production systems should be back up by Monday morning.  Some services should be back up prior to that time, but the vendor can’t provide a good estimate on the migration time, because it depends on too many variables.
