CONNECT – Migration of UAS shared file server clusters

As part of on-going security and consolidation works, a large number of UAS departmental drives need to be migrated to new infrastructure during the evenings of Tues 26th, Weds 27th and Thurs 28th November between 8pm and midnight. Most UAS departmental drives accessible via either G:\ or O\: as well as the P:\ drive will be unavailable for a period of time during this work to allow for the migration. Please see the attached spreadsheet for the schedule and list of drives affected. During the times specified no access to the drives will be available including via the Remote Desktop Service.

Updates will be provided on the status page https://status.ox.ac.uk. All file paths and folder permissions will be retained during this migration with no changes to access. If you are still using  ‘scan to folder’ function on old photocopiers this will likely stop working. We will not be able to re-instate this due to updated security standards but may be able to offer a ‘scan to email’ function if the photocopier can support this. Please report any issues to the Service Desk on ext. 12345 or via help@it.ox.ac.uk.
