Thu, Mar 21, 2024, 8:00 – File Server Outage – UPDATED 8:45pm

One of the file servers is intermittently getting extremely slow. This will often make desktop machines look like they are locked up. We are investigating this now.

We will update this notice when we have more information.


  • 8:50am. The file server is serving files properly. We will continue to monitor the server.
  • 12:00. We are seeing delays again, and are looking into it.
    • 12:45pm. It is serving files again, as we continue to verify the source of the problem.
  • 1:40pm. We are rebooting the file server, which typically takes about 90 minutes, due to start-up integrity checks.
    • 4:00pm. The reboot is taking longer than expected.
    • 5:10pm. We have had to reboot the machine again.
    • 8:45pm. The file server is back up and serving files again.
