Update:Relocation of PECOS infrastructure-29 June to 1 July

2 July 9.50am

The relocation of the PECOS infrastructure from Boston, USA to Edinburgh was successfully completed over the weekend, and users can now log into the system.

We are aware of a local issue which results in approvers not receiving emails advising that orders are available to approve.  ICS and the PECOS team are working together to resolve this issue, but in the meantime users should advise their approvers when an order is placed.  The orders can be approved as normal by accessing the inbox.

**************************

25 June 9.54am

The live PECOS infrastructure is being relocated from Boston, USA to the Scottish Government Data Centre in Edinburgh during the weekend of 29th June-1st July, 2012.

How will this affect me?

PECOS will be unavailable from 12:30pm on Friday 29th June 2012 and no purchase orders, amendments or receipts can be processed after this time.  You will be unable to access the system and should not attempt to log in until you receive an email advising that it is available.

When will transactions appear in CODA?

The interface between PECOS and CODA will be switched off on the evening of Thursday 28th June 2012 and any transactions which occur following the final run of the interface on Thursday evening will be included in the first run of the interface on Monday 2nd July 2012.

Update:LANDesk downtime from 11.30am today (Wed 27 June)

Problems with the upgrade have now been fixed and LANDesk is up and running. Please report any errors to Service Desk.

**************************************

Further to the upgrade to LANDesk last night, an issue has arisen which needs fixed as soon as possible. This involves taking LANDesk offline at 11.30am today. The repair is likely to take around two hours but may take longer.
