Upgrade Successful

The upgrade from version 8.9 to 9.0 Campus Solutions (SFIS) and 9.1 HRMS is complete and was successful.  The links to the right are working.  There may still be some issues with individual pages that were not seen during the Sunday testing.  Please e-mail upgrade@wesleyan.edu to report any problems.

After 3 PM on Sunday the technical staff will not be available until Monday morning.  Thanks to everyone for the work you have put in to make this a successful upgrade.

The final round of “live testing” is ready as of Sunday, July 15 at 11 am.  Users in offices around campus have come in for “testing” in the new CS90 and HR91 PROD databases.  If you are a tester links to the databases are to the right on this blog.

Only “live” data should be entered in the PROD databases.  These are the databases that will be open to the campus tomorrow.  In addition please test the new production portfolio as much as possible.

Any problems should be reported to upgrade@wesleyan.edu.  All of the technical staff that support SFIS and HRMS are in their offices today until 2 PM.

The final production upgrade of  SFIS/HRMS begins Thursday, July 12 at noon.  The current 8.9 PROD of SFIS will come down promptly at noon, as well as all portfolios.  The upgrade will proceed through the weekend.  Testers from the major offices will come in on Sunday late morning to do “live-testing” on the new production systems.  We expect the new version 9.0 SFIS and 9.1 HRMS databases to be open to all users Monday morning.

This blog will be updated during the upgrade weekend with new information and links.

Final Test Period

The final test move before the go-live weekend has been completed as of June 28.  Please go into CS90TEST and HR91TEST to review the functionality you expect.  While it is not required that you go through your full test scripts, you should do enough testing to be satisfied that everything is working properly.  The data in the TEST databases is as of June 14.   Use the links to the right to get to the login pages.  The test Portfolio Systems are also up.

 Although we cannot incorporate any more changes into the upgrade scripts, please contact us if any functionality is not working.  We are maintaining a list of reported “bugs” and will fix as many as possible in the new PROD database on Sunday, July 15.  Send issues to sfisrequest@wesleyan.edu.

 Thank you again for all the time and effort you have put into the upgrade process.  We are close to seeing the end of the tunnel!

The process of upgrading will occur between 5 PM July 12 and Sunday Morning, July 15.  On Sunday afternoon, July 15, representative of all offices will be asked to do final testing on the new upgraded databases.  More details on this testing process will be available as we approach the go-live weekend.
