Monthly Update Schedule:

The following is an estimated schedule for software updates to the Colleague environments at Lewis & Clark College.  Development refers to an environment used by the Information Systems staff to develop new processes and check information before it goes out to users.  The Test environment is available for users to set up and test new processes before moving them to the Live environment.


1st —  A new software update group will be created and installed into the Development account.  This group will contain all available patches at the time. Any custom software issue will be handled at this time.  

10th — The patches added on the first that have been checked in the Development account will be moved into the Test account.  End users testing can be done at this time.

20th —  All the patches from above will be loaded in their final form into the Live Colleague account.

Announcements will be emailed to when the batches are installed in test and live.  Dates may not be exact depending on weekends, schedule conflicts, illness, etc.  

Data Refresh:

Live data will be moved to the test account every three months right after the patches are loaded into the live account around the 20th.  This will be announced in the test patch email to The last refresh was February 18, 2012.
