Downtime: Thu, September 9, 2010

Tuesday, September 7th, 2010

On Thursday, September 9, 2010, we will have a scheduled downtime from 4:00am to 8:00am EDT.

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

What is happening:

  • We will be moving home directories back to their proper place in the NetApp storage pool.
    • At our last downtime, we moved the home directories to a temporary area in our disk storage array so that we could reconfigure the disk space for increased redundancy. At this downtime, we will move the home directories back to their proper location. (This movement is transparent to the users.)
  • We will be updating the Zimbra e-mail software.
    • The Zimbra update is part of normal maintenance. The update includes both bug fixes and some feature enhancements. This anticipated update wasn’t available earlier in the summer so we are doing it now before the semester begins
