A Third of MyNavy HR Systems Will Be Down Over Columbus Day Weekend

A Third of MyNavy HR Systems Will Be Down Over Columbus Day Weekend

Seventeen MyNavy HR systems, including MyNavy Assignment, will be down Oct. 9-11 as they are moved back to their original hosting location at the Naval Information Warfare Center Atlantic in New Orleans. The systems were temporarily moved to remote disaster recovery sites in August in the wake of Hurricane Ida.

Doing so allowed sailors to access those sites, but it’s not a sustainable solution, according to David Menzen, director of enterprise support, who works with the chief of naval personnel on the MyNavy HR enterprise.

As a result, the systems have been syncing for two weeks in preparation for the move. Sailors can expect them to be down starting at 8 a.m. Oct. 9, Menzen said.

“The systems have been back online for a number of weeks … and so, next weekend, what we’re going to do is a deliberate recovery of the systems from Kansas City and Charleston back to New Orleans,” Menzen told Navy Times.

“Our hope is to have all systems back up online within two to three days, max,” Menzen said.

A total of 17 My NavyHR systems were moved in response to Hurricane Ida, including the systems for the MyNavy Assignment, which sailors and command career counselors use to view and apply for available jobs. Hurricane Ida took the site down Aug. 29 after the Category 4 storm hit New Orleans and took out power across the city.

Restoring that system is the top priority during this restoration process, according to Menzen.
