(14 December 2016)

The IT Services team is making improvements to a number of our IT Services during December, which means you’ll be temporarily unable to access them. 

Upcoming work includes:

 

Saturday 17 December – 6.30am to 2pm
Personal network storage (P: Drives), some shared network areas, the Video Library Service and some other services will be unavailable for all staff and students. 

Sunday 18 December – 1am to 5am
Blackboard will be unavailable while a workaround is applied to a known issue. 

Sunday 18 December
Some portlets in My Manchester may display error messages. However, major services including Blackboard and Email will still be accessible, although people will not be able to activate course spaces. 

Friday 23 December – 1am to 5am
Blackboard will be unavailable while maintenance is performed.
