Required ILLiad Changes Prior to the Rapid Server Migration

Rapid is transitioning from hosting their Rapid servers at Colorado State University to the Ex Libris Higher-Ed Cloud Platform. As a part of this server migration, RapidX is moving from using its numeric IP address ( to the use of its Domain Name System ( This means all locations in ILLiad where the numeric IP address is mentioned will need to be changed to the new Domain Name System (DNS) prior to December 8th, 2019. Atlas Systems has created a script to run against your server in an effort to eliminate the work of having to manually change the IP address to the DNS for each LenderAddress record in the database.

  • For all hosted sites, Atlas Systems and OCLC have tentatively scheduled to run the query that will make the changes addressed above to your hosted database on Tuesday, Nov 26 at 10 AM Eastern.
  • If you are self-hosted, your SQL Server Administrator should connect to your ILLiad database and run the query supplied by Atlas prior to December 8th.

To obtain a copy of the script or for more information, see Rapid IP/DNS Change. For all other questions, please contact your ILLiad provider. Thanks!
