Preventative Maintenance: Begins 5:30PM October 25, 2019 – 8:00AM October 26, 2019

Important information: We are shutting down the data center during this maintenance period to do some major upgrades to our SAN to stay in compliance with our support agreements and to keep the hardware up to date. Normal updates do not usually require downtime but this one does. The systems will be up by 8:00AM on Saturday October 26, 2019. All applications and Network Drives will be down during this time.

In an effort to keep Amarillo College’s computers and network running smoothly, our ITS department completes some preventative maintenance each month.  This preventative maintenance procedure may affect the accessibility of AC Connect and Blackboard Learn, Colleague, and various AC websites.  

As part of the preventative maintenance procedure, all files in the Public folder (located in the P: drive) will be removed.  This folder is meant for temporary storage and easy transfer of documents between individuals or departments.  It is not intended as long-term storage for individuals.  If you have any documents in the Public folder, please back them up to an alternate storage device before this date.

Thank you for your cooperation.
