CUNYfirst: Planned Disaster Recovery Drill and System Availability from August 1-2, 2015

The annual CUNYfirst Disaster Recovery Drill (DR Drill) is scheduled the weekend of August 1-2, 2015. During this DR Drill, CUNYfirst will be unavailable to all users.
DR Drill start time: 4 pm on Saturday, August 1
DR Drill finish time: 6 pm on Sunday, August 2
The annual CUNYfirst DR Drill provides CUNY the opportunity to exercise the recovery tasks required if the primary CUNYfirst System were to shut down unexpectedly. The DR Drill confirms CUNY’s ability to: respond to a CUNYfirst disaster recovery scenario, make the backup system available to users, and restore the primary servers to full capacity for our user community.
Note that CUNYfirst Reporting instances will not be available until Tuesday morning, August 4. When the Reporting instances become available they will be populated with the data from Sunday night.
Thank you for your patience in supporting this very important exercise.
