We are planning to upgrade the SharePoint Services sites at https://sharepoint.uvm.edu on Saturday, March 9th, starting at 7 pm. Sites hosted on the service will be unavailable for the duration of the upgrade. The upgrade is estimated to take four to five hours to complete.
As part of this upgrade, we are replacing the PartnerPoint guest account service with enhancements to UVM's existing GuestNet system. In order to migrate existing PartnerPoint (partnerpoint.uvm.edu) accounts into GuestNet (guestnet.uvm.edu), account additions and updates in both systems will be suspended starting at 8 AM on Saturday, March 9th.
When complete, sharepoint.uvm.edu will be upgraded to “SharePoint Foundation 2010”. New features will include in-browser viewing and editing of Microsoft Office documents, improved browser compatibility, and a look-and-feel that is more consistent with current versions of Microsoft Office.
