News & Updates
Thursday June 4, 2015
Enterprise Systems will be having Oracle upgrade our OBIEE environment to the latest version of the PeopleTools 8.54 software. This upgrade will not change the functionality of the OBIEE Data Warehouse and will just be a software upgrade. Since this is a major upgrade, we will need to have an extended timeframe for the maintenance to occur. In an effort to limit the amount of the impact on end users, we have scheduled the upgrade to begin tonight at 6 PM and run until Sunday morning between 9 am and noon. Once the upgrade is completed, the Enterprise Systems tech team and the BI-tech team will perform post-upgrade health checks and bring the OBIEE environment back online.
During this maintenance window, access to the zzusis portal will still be available and all menus and functions within the portal will remain active. The menu item OBIEE Reporting (11g) will show up but will only return a new window stating that the service is unavailable if users try to access that menu item during the maintenance window.
Thus, access to the portal will be available and not impacted by this maintenance. However, access to the OBIEE environment, including all dashboards and Answers, will not be available beginning at 6 PM Thursday June 4th, with no access during the business day on Friday June 5th and no access over the weekend until sometime Sunday morning.
The BI technical team will be suspending the ETL runs for the evenings of Thursday June 4th, Friday June 5th and Saturday June 6th. We will restart the ETL run sometime on Sunday afternoon so that by the start of the business day on Monday, the data warehouse will have the updated ETL run completed to load all the data generated during the maintenance window.
