Blackboard Updates - 7/16July 16, 2004
The blackboard system was down from 10:15 to 11:15pm Friday, July 16 due to issues after applying the Microsoft patches needed for critical system updates. The enormous size of the transaction log file for the blackboard database appeared to have caused the problem. The majority of the time was spent having SQL Server checkpoint or verify the database before it could come back online. All services have been restored.
