[downtime] Urgent CS Public Cycle System Downtime, Tuesday, March 17, 07:00-08:00

Monday, March 16th, 2015

Date: Tuesday, March 17, 2015 (07:00-08:00)

Who is affected:
All users of the CS Department “cycles” systems (soak, wash, rinse, and
spin).

What is happening:
The cycles systems will be shutdown and rebooted after a firmware update.

Why is it happening:
Due to an uptime-related firmware bug on the current cycles servers, the
systems have recently become unstable. In order to avoid a possible
unplanned outage of these systems, they will be power cycled and have the
affected firmware updated to a version no longer affected by the bug.

We will post updates to the status page: http://www.csstaff.org
as necessary.

If this downtime will cause you undue hardship, please contact
csstaff@cs.princeton.edu immediately, so we can discuss options to reduce
any negative impact. Your patience is appreciated.

Sincerely,
CS Staff
