SharePoint Upgrade - Update

08/12/2016

The Bader team continue to engage with our service support providers in order to fix the ongoing SharePoint permission issues.

It has been identified that it will be necessary for the team to restore and roll back to SharePoint 2007 to enable users to continue to access the service.

Any documents that have been uploaded until 1100hrs 8 Dec 16 will be recovered. Any documents uploaded after this time will not be recoverable, we therefore strongly suggest that users refrain from uploading documents.

We estimate that SharePoint 2007 will be online by 1600hrs 8 Dec 16.

Whilst this will undoubtedly be disappointing news to everyone please be assured that the team continue to work in the background on delivering SharePoint 2013 as a fully functioning product.

We would appreciate that calls to the BADER helpdesk relating to this issue are kept to a minimum so as to allow the team to focus on resolving the issue.

SharePoint Upgrade - Update

06/12/2016

Please be aware that we are currently experiencing issues with permission migrations since the SharePoint platform upgrade. This may mean that users are unable to view some areas of SharePoint that they previously had access to.

The team are currently running permission migration plans which are expected to rectify the issue at completion.

However if at plan completion, we are unable to restore the expected access we will revert to the contingency plan and look at restoring the old SharePoint site whilst reviewing why the permission migration failed. Further communications will follow if this is the case.

The planned release of SMS 3.19 for 7 Dec 16 has been delayed until we have resolved the current SharePoint issues.

We would appreciate that calls to the BADER helpdesk relating to this issue are kept to a minimum so as to allow the team to focus on resolving the issue.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused
