6. What is the timetable for upgrades?
After circulating a draft timetable (for comments) to all units' IT Support Staff (ITSS), a final schedule was published on 15 February 2012. Your ITSS should be able to tell you when your upgrade is likely to occur. (You will also receive a personalised email at least a week before informing you of the date/time. For more information please see our FAQs page.) Upgrades are divided into 'early adopters' and the 'main group'.
After the 'turn on' of Exchange 2010 on 14 February 2012, a group of early adopters will be upgraded on the night of 19-20 February 2012. The early adopters, which includes all OUCS staff, will assist (amongst other things) in validating documentation (see http://www.oucs.ox.ac.uk/nexus/help/).
The main group of mailboxes (the rest of the University) will be upgraded from 4/5 March 2012. We hope that the upgrades will be largely complete by 30 March 2012. The weeks of 2, 9 and 16 April may be used for any final mailboxes that could not - for whatever reason - be upgraded during the main schedule.
