To: IMS Upgrade Reminder: 10pm on Friday, January 6 through 6am on Saturday, January 7, 2017 with brief service interruption

CUNY is upgrading the identity management system (IMS)
that grants users access to CUNYfirst, CUNYsmart and the Virtual Bookstore
via their CUNYfirst login credentials (CUNYfirst username and password). This
IMS upgrade is required to remain current with CUNY software maintenance and
release plans.

The upgrade start and end time are as follows:

IMS upgrade start time: 10 pm on Friday, January 6, 2017
IMS upgrade end time: 6 am on Saturday, January 7, 2017

During the IMS upgrade, there will be a cutover to the new IMS version that
will briefly interrupt access to any active CUNYfirst, CUNYsmart or Virtual
Bookstore application sometime between 10 pm and 2 am. Following this
cutover, users may have to log back in to application(s) that were active at
the time of cut-over.

After the upgrade, users may notice slight changes to the Virtual Bookstore
login page at John Jay College, Medgar Evers College, the CUNY Law School,
and Queens College. Other campuses will not see any changes in their Virtual
Bookstore software.

The Friday night MyInfo, CUNYfirst data transfer and Reporting data refresh
will still take place as scheduled during the IMS upgrade.
