Migration to Windows 2003

Equifax will upgrade the Operating System from NT to Windows 2003 on the servers running on the Equifax Canada Internet infrastructure.

Monday, August 23, 2004 - The servers on the UAT environment that are part of the Equifax Canada Internet infrastructure will be upgraded to Windows 2003. The URL https://uat.equifax.ca will remain the same.

We encourage all our clients to test their Internet applications on the UAT environment starting August 23, 2004. If any problems are encountered during the UAT testing, please email sts@equifax.com or contact our System-to-System Technical Support Team at 1-800-387-9986, Option #2.
