Summary: On Saturday, April 23th, Learn@UW performed a scheduled database upgrade as a necessary preparation for the upcoming Desire2Learn upgrade in June. Beginning around 10AM on Monday, April 25th, users began to encounter errors, and Learn@UW technologists started to investigate the issues. At 8:40AM on Tuesday, April 26th, we reported that the errors were resolved, except for the discussion statistics issue. At 8:15AM on Wednesday, April 27th the initial errors returned with some more severe errors. The decision was made at 10:30AM by Learn@UW to take the system offline to preserve the data integrity and to allow for more intensive diagnostics. Throughout the day, Learn@UW worked closely with high level Microsoft and Desire2Learn technicians to diagnose and implement a fix. Services were restored at 12:30AM on Thursday, April 28th. We again would like to thank everyone for their patience during this outage.
