2022 – IT Disaster Recovery Test Dates

Faculty/Staff, over the past seven years, we have done extensive work to prepare the campus for a true technology disaster. These disaster recovery tests always take place in June and we are now ready to run a similar trial again this summer.  Please, note the dates below, so you can plan accordingly.

The 2022 Disaster Recovery Test will start on Sunday, June 12th,and end at 5 p.m. on Monday, June 13th.

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 the following non-redundant systems to be unavailable during the DR Test, so please plan accordingly.

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.
