FS 9.2 UPGRADE (8.53)
A PeopleTools upgrade to 8.53 from 8.51 as well as application upgrade to 9.2.
scheduled for Friday 11/21/2014 @3PM thru Monday 11/24/2014 with testing beginning approx. 6PM Sunday 11/23

LAST UPDATED: Sunday @ 1:45 AM CURRENT STATUS: UPGRADE ITSELF is essentially COMPLETE - entering misc/pre-testing activities for the next 2-3 hours; project, temp tables, clustering, etc.
PREV UPDATES: Sunday @ 6:10 AM CURRENT STATUS: removed a full backup - 3:30 hrs BEHIND SCHEDULE - starting PUM8! network folks left around 5:30 - to coordinate changes with us later today
PREV UPDATES: Sunday @ 3:45 AM CURRENT STATUS: 5:15 hrs BEHIND SCHEDULE - yes, our support team is still working on firewall issue but we picked up almost 2 hrs more!
PREV UPDATES: Sunday @ 1:46 AM CURRENT STATUS: 7 hrs BEHIND SCHEDULE - yes, our support team is still working on firewall issue but we picked up an hour on appl data conversion

PREV UPDATES: Saturday @ 11:59 PM CURRENT STATUS: 8 hrs BEHIND SCHEDULE - our support team is still working on firewall issue but we are successfully rerunning the application data conversion, even though we are using a development appserver pointed to production! Believe it or not we think we can make up enough of this time (yes - ONLY if no lingering firewall issues or upgrade new problems) TO FINISH SUNDAY. Stay tuned for Monday AM's update as we do LCCC's PSU at 7AM. On a humorous note (if you laugh at bizarre things), for those of you who know that we are swapping laptop memory across machines as part of our upgrade strategy, the network folks in here are swapping memory from old spare firewall devices to try to get our PeopleSoft firewalls operating! Like some comedians say, "I can't make up this stuff!"
