Date: Tuesday, July 24, 2018 (05:00-08:00)

Who is affected:
All users of the CS department computing.

What is happening:
We are upgrading our storage operating system, which requires for CS
storage to be rebooted. We expect that some of the SMB/CIFS clients will
have to reconnect, but NFS service will be continuous. The rest of CS
services should not be affected.

Why is it happening:
This is necessary in order to fix numerous bugs on our file system.

We will post updates to the status page:
as necessary.

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

Update as of 07:36: The upgrade process is proceeding more slowly than expected. While interruption is still expected to be minimal, we will be continuing work beyond the original window. We expect the upgrade to be completed by 09:00.
