Short outages for Windows server WinAPP and Stock Room Signouts Tuesday May 7th
On Tuesday May 7th, 2013, we will be restarting WinAPP
and the Stock Room back end servers at 10AM. The servers should be available by 10:15AM.
General network and server maintenance will occur every Tuesday from 12 noon to 2:00 PM.
The CLASSE-IT group will always announce any expected disruptions in our NewsLetter

Unless other arrangements have been made, CLASSE-managed Windows systems may be updated and rebooted on Tuesday morning at 2:00 AM
, so please avoid critical or lengthy operations at that time. For more details, please see SystemExpectations
