2019 DR Test Dates

Posted on: No Comments


Over the course of the past four years we have done extensive work to prepare the campus for a true technology disaster. Last year we did a disaster recovery test in June and are now ready to run a similar trial this summer. Please, make note of the dates below so you can plan accordingly.

The 2019 Disaster Recovery Test will start on Sunday, June 9th and end at 5 p.m. on Monday, June 10th.

What does this mean for you?

All of TCU’s primary systems have backup servers running in our secondary data center which will take over when we do this test. Our goal is to ensure that the redundant systems do their job in the case that TCU is faced with a true emergency.

Major systems like email, printing, file shares, Internet access, myTCU/PeopleSoft, ID card access, and TCU websites are expected to make a seamless transition or have minimal downtime. We DO expect several non-redundant systems to be unavailable during the DR Test and will provide more details as the event approaches.  If you have any questions or problems, please reach out to the IT Support HelpDesk using the information below and we will route your questions to the appropriate contact
