Emergency Downtime: Thu, Oct 30, 2008

On Thursday, October 30, 2008, we will have an emergency downtime from 4:00am to 8:00am EDT.

During this time we will be shutting down our infrastructure so that we can apply updates to the file server. The vendor has requested that we apply these updates so that we can have the very latest configuration while we continue to diagnose the ongoing performance and connectivity issues.

Update: We applied the patches and have escalated the issue with the vendor. We are still seeing performance and connectivity problems with the file server. These problems impact project space, the cvs server, and the web site.

Update 11/1, 12:15pm: We continue to have issues. Our vendor has assigned personnel to work the problem over the weekend.
