During this time, both wired and wireless networking will be unavailable in the CS building. All CS-based services will be unavailable including cycle servers, ionic cluster, e-mail, web content, DNS, DHCP, CIFS, etc. CS portions of the wired network will be unavailable in Sherrerd Hall (CITP), 221 Nassau (PlanetLab), and the Friend Center (010 Suite).
