Downtime: Tue, November 1, 2011

On Tuesday, November 1, 2011, we will have a scheduled downtime from 4:00am to 8:00am EDT.

This downtime affects all users of the department’s computing and networking infrastructure.

Scheduled work includes:

  • Security/bug-fix updates to Zimbra E-mail systems
  • Security/bug-fix/configuration updates to Apache/PHP web servers
  • Minor configuration update to support connection to new HPCRC facility
  • Minor configuration update to facilitate ongoing transition to new file server

During some of the 4am-8am window, most of the services (e.g., E-mail, web, cycle servers) will be unavailable. E-mail destined to the department will be queued and then delivered at the end of the maintenance window.
