Update:  - 05-25-12, 1645 hours - Colleague environment is now available for use.  Please note that the Datatel User Interface 4.x now uses your computer/email account and password for login.  The old user ID and password no longer is in effect.


Update:  05-25-12, 1430 hours - Colleague still down--Datatel support contacted because of issues with migrated environment.


Information Technology will be migrating the Colleague server from 1600 hours on Thursday, May 24th through 0530 hours on Friday, May 25th.  During this time period the following services will be affected:

Applications and services affected:

  • Colleague
  • Datatel User Interface 4.x 
  • Entrinsik Informer 
  • Post View 
  • Synoptix

After the migration takes place, Colleague users will use their network/email login credentials to access Colleague UI4.x.

All Colleague Printer aliases will be changed to suit the new naming convention.

UI 2.3 desktop will no longer be able to access the production account. Users must use the web based interface(UI4.x) to directly access the Colleague product.

Query Builder will no longer be available.

Post View, UI4.x, Informer will be relinked to connect to the new Production Environment. The user should be able to connect using the same URL as they do currently.

Any data entry on Friday should be closely monitored in case of any unknown problems.

Please contact the Help Desk at 7643 or email if you have any questions.
