Blackboard Team Meeting – May 13

  • Bb Issue Reported – Yesterday the load balancer caused a short period of time where Bb was unavailable as a maintenance message was displayed.  This happened around 11:30.   The help desk wasn’t aware that Bb was effected.   Plan to review service level monitoring project to plan next steps.
  • Bb Test Server Created – Banner patch was installed, doesn’t seem to resolve the issue.
  • Delete Courses – The Winter 2009 courses can be deleted. (72 hours after the one year period).  Plan is to delete from all systems except Bb 8 test… W09 courses.
