Downtime: Tuesday, January 27, 2009

Friday, January 16th, 2009

On Tuesday, January 27, 2009, we will have a scheduled downtime from 4:00am to 8:00am EST.

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

Scheduled work includes:

  • Reconfiguring the wireless network
  • Updates to our NetApp filer
  • Updates to the OS on the cycles machines
  • Updates to our e-mail system

This work is part of normal maintenance. Note that this downtime overlaps the OIT shutdown of all campus network services. For details, see their posting.

The change that will affect users the most is the reconfiguration of our wireless infrastructure. After the change, all wireless users should use the “csvapornet” SSID. For details see the CS Guide.
