Maintenance OSIRIS

On Monday the 20th of August from 08.00 to approximately 12.30 hours, the Student Information System OSIRIS will not be totally available due to maintenance work.

During this maintenance work, no overviews can be requested in OSIRIS Student, Tutor and in the Back Office. Plus the connection to Studielink will not available during this period of maintenance, which means that any changes made in Studielink will not be passed on or be available in ORIRIS until later on that day.

Explanation regarding the maintenance

The goal of this maintenance is to increase the stability of OSIRIS. For the past few months, OSIRIS has had problems with small faults, resulting in the system frequently being unavailable to the end users. In general, the faults do not last for long but they are inconvenient.

Analysis has shown that the OSIRIS faults are mainly on account of the problems with the UT’s storage environment, of which we are already aware. These problems then affect OSIRIS resulting in occasional non-availability of the application.

The aim of this maintenance is to make OSIRIS less dependent on the storage environment, so that the system has a higher degree of availability. In addition, ICTS is still working hard on improving the stability of the storage environment, but anticipates that these problems will not be resolved structurally until early 2013.

We are sorry for any inconvenience, but do anticipate that this maintenance work will improve the availability of OSIRIS.

With kind regards,

S&O and ICTS
