UNI Electronic Calendar Purge - July 15, 2011 Weekend

On Sunday morning, July 17, 2011, all UNI Electronic Calendar entries prior to July 1, 2009, will be purged from the system as part of the yearly maintenance we perform on the Calendar database. If there are calendar entries prior to July 1, 2009 you wish to keep, you must individually export the calendar data from the Calendar server. Use the file/export command within the Oracle Calendar client prior to this event (suggested by Friday, July 15th) then subsequently after the Sunday, July 17th purge (suggested on Monday, July 18th) file/import that data back into Oracle Calendar. We recommend exporting to iCal format though other formats are available. Additional instruction available (note to change the date selection range) at http://www.vpaf.uni.edu/tss/documents/oracle_cal_archive_mtgs.pdf

Again, this only affects calendar entries over 2 years old - entries prior to July 1, 2009. Special note, with the export/import function you can export old entries now and save the file for merging back in later after the Sunday, July 17, 2011 purge. You may find it prudent to save the exported data file until you have verified the success of importing.
