Sat, Feb 17, 2018 Scheduled McKesson Service Outage


McKesson has let us know that there will be a scheduled outage this Saturday, Feb 17.  Your orders and price updates may be effected.  Here is their message:


During our scheduled maintenance window this weekend, server operating systems will be patched, causing the potential for communications interruptions for FTP/sFTP and AS2 connectivity.

 

If a server is unavailable at the time of the original transmission, documents outbound from McKesson will be held and processed after the server has been restarted.

 

You may encounter errors in connecting to McKesson’s FTP or AS2 servers during the maintenance period.  Please either ensure you have processes in place to retry failed connections, or monitor for such errors and retry manually.

 

The period where servers will be patched begins at 8pm Pacific time Saturday, February 17 and will complete by 11pm Pacific time Saturday, February 17.
