So based on the current scheduled missions going to the #ISS and need an IDA docking adapter. The earliest time there will be a docking adapter availble for the #OFT2 mission will be the 2nd half of November 2021.
So after the departure of the #Crew2 mission currently scheduled for the 8th of November, however the #Crew3 has to redock their capsule from #IDA2 to #IDA3 first. However on the 5th of December SpaceX Cargo Dragon #CRS24 needs that docking port again.

Per morning DPC: #OFT2 launch weather I think I understood 50% go, and the crew asked for @nasa TV to be uplinked to them so they can watch. #ISS#Exp65
Pressure on the #ISS: 752mmHg and on the Prk: 176mmHg.

Good morning everyone! #ISS crew is now back awake and is just having their morning DPC (daily planning conference). Seems like the activities for undocking of #Pirs will actually take place today! #Exp65#MLM#Nauka
Russian #ISS crew members are also doing some tasks today to prepare for a potential contingency EVA if that becomes necessary after #Pirs undocking and before #Nauka docking.

On board the #ISS many activities regarding #Pirs undocking have been canceled indicating that the undocking tomorrow based on the current status of #MLM#Nauka has been canceled. #unconfirmed#Exp65
Ok so the OPM (optimal propulsion maneuver) to reorient the #ISS to the undocking attitude for #Pirs is still on schedule! MCC #Houston reminded @Aki_Hoshide to close the window shutters for that during morning DPC (daily planning conference)

Upon multiple request I will try to recreate the construction of the #ISS with the recent released @LEGO_Group model in this thread (if you find any errors please let me know):
On November 20th 1998 the first #ISS module #Zarya aka #FGB was launched from #Kazakhstan with a #ProtonK rocket. It was built in Russia but funded by @nasa but operated by @roscosmos. Its purpose is cargo storage
