Scheduled Outage for Dept. File Shares

September 16, 2013

To: UCOP Community

From: Shirley Bittlingmeier, Client Services Officer, Information Technology Services

ITS is planning to migrate department networked file shares to new servers with greater capacity and improved backup. The first migration takes place Friday, September 20, at 9:00 p.m. through Saturday, September 21, at 9:00 a.m. During that time, you will not have access to some department file shares. Personal or individual file shares will not be impacted. If you will need to access file shares during this time, you may wish to temporarily move copies of the files to another location, such as a SharePoint site.

After the migration, you will not notice any changes. All file shares will have the same names as before and all shortcuts to the file shares will be available. If you have any problems connecting to a file share on Monday, please try restarting your computer. If you continue to have problems, please contact the IT Service Desk at 987-0457 or

This project resumes an effort started in June that was not completed due to technological problems. Additional migrations will occur at later dates and we will provide you notification in advance. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience the outage may cause.
