D2L QA Unavailable Sun Oct 30 from 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM
The QA down time has been extended to resolve some issues that we are seeing on our storage systems. Our Storage Problem is just about resolved. Taking longer than we had hoped. We should have QA on line by 7:00 pm.
As part of the fix for file path issues on D2L Prod, the corresponding QA sites will need to have the files resnapped on Sunday, Oct 30.
This will not affect any work you've done in QA (calendar entries, dropbox feedback, discussion posts, DOME settings, etc).
It will affect files in QA. Any files that were uploaded to QA that were not also uploaded in Prod will be gone after the resnap. The files in QA will then be a replication of the files that currently exist in Production.

The new memory hardware has been successfully installed. Hopefully, this proactive and swift hardware upgrade has prevented any unrecoverable data loss incidents from occurring. REPL performance may be slow because of on-going recovery tool processing and database cache not being available.
Operational Data (REPL) - will be unavailable from Noon to 4 p.m. today, Monday, October 17, 2011.
Since Saturday night, we have been experiencing memory module errors on the REPL database. It is critical that we address these issues ASAP. This will require the immediate replacement of new hardware and system downtime.
