This page lists scheduled maintenance notices for systems supported by the Computing and Telecommunications Center (CTC) at Fort Hays University.  All times posted are in Central Time.

Date Posted: 12/19/14

Scheduled Maintenance Date(s):  Saturday, January 3, 2015 - 7:00 am

The main Lotus Notes server ( will be taken down on Saturday, Jan. 3, 2015, at 7:00 AM CST for a system upgrade.

We will be upgrading the server from version 8.5.3 to version 9.1.  The server hardware and operating system will also be upgraded at this same time.

This is a necessary upgrade to implement improved security features for the system.  We anticipate the total system down time to be less than 2 hours (hopefully less than 1 hour).

If, by chance, we run into extreme difficulties, we will bring the current system back online, troubleshoot the issues, and try again at a later date.

You should not notice major differences in your Lotus Notes appearance afterwards. 

We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate everyone's patience.

Inquiries regarding this scheduled maintenance should be directed to the CTC HelpDesk.

No additional notices are posted at this time.  Please contact the CTC HelpDesk if you are experiencing a system outage.
