On Saturday, June 26th, 6 AM until 6 PM is a planned information systems outage to upgrade servers. Not all databases will be down for the entire time. The hope is to have myEMU back in a few hours.
The SSRS report server, myEMU, J1, Powerfaids, CashNET, and all databases hosted on SISDB will be affected.
We are sorry for the inconvenience this will cause, but it is necessary that EMU upgrade its servers in order to continue using Jenzabar, the campus portal (myEMU), and financial aid software (PowerFAIDS). Thank you for your patience. If you have any questions please email the Helpdesk, firstname.lastname@example.org
