UCFileSpace migration begins Wednesday, Dec. 18

File storage and homepages.uc.edu content will move to new platforms.

IT@UC will migrate UCFileSpace storage and homepages.uc.edu webhosting services to platforms supported by new and improved technology.

UCFileSpace file storage will move to Microsoft OneDrive. And, homepages.uc.edu will move to a new platform called cPanel.

The migrations begin Wednesday, Dec. 18, and will run continuously over the university’s Winter Season Days closure until the anticipated completion date of Monday, Jan. 6, 2020.

REMINDER:  UCFileSpace does not support Restricted Data; therefore, no such data should reside on this system. If, however, you should have restricted data on UCFIleSpace, it cannot be migrated during this process. Please review all files and remove restricted data before the migrations begin on December 18, 2019. For a definition and list of types of restricted data, please consult the Office of Information Security Data Classification Policy.

If you have concerns or questions about this process, feel free to email Paul.Foster@uc.edu.

What's changing

The migration process copies your content in file storage and places it in a folder called "Imported from UCFileSpace" in your OneDrive account. 

Note: Please do not move files in your "Imported from UCFileSpace" folder in OneDrive. Doing so will disrupt the process and stop your content from successfully migrating to OneDrive.Replace with your text

The migration process copies your existing homepages.uc.edu content and places it on a new server (RedHat Enterprise Linux 7.7) that runs the new cPanel platform. 

URLs for sites under the homespage.uc.edu domain will remain the same.

What to expect during the migrations

You have the option to remove old files from file storage or homepages.uc.edu prior to December 18; however, it is not necessary to do so.

UCFileSpace file storage-to-OneDrive

  • You will be able to view and open “read-only” files online from Wednesday, Dec. 18-Monday, Jan. 6, during the migration to OneDrive.
  • To retain editable copies of your files, download them to your computer or your OneDrive account. View instructions to download your UCFileSpace files.

homepages.uc.edu-to-cPanel

  • You will be able to view homepages.uc.edu sites online during and after the migration to the new cPanel web hosting service. URLs will remain the same.
  • You will not be able to create new or update existing content on homepages.uc.edu sites during the migration process. 
  • It is not necessary to save any of your homepages.uc.edu content or files to another location. We will still have a copy of it should we need to reference it.

You will receive an email notice of completion from IT@UC HelpDesk (HELPDESK@ucmail.uc.edu) when all of your UCFileSpace file storage and homepages.uc.edu content finishes migrating to the new platforms.

The message will also include how-to information to help you:

  • Get started with Microsoft OneDrive;
  • Edit existing homepages.uc.edu content;
  • And create new sites with the cPanel interface or through SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol).

Note: Please do not move files in your "Imported from UCFileSpace" folder in OneDrive until you receive the email notice of completion. Doing so will disrupt the process and stop your content from successfully migrating to OneDrive. Replace with your text
