Scheduled File Server Outages: Wed Aug 22, Thu Aug 23

We have scheduled two, two-hour file server outages for next week to address hardware issues we need to handle before classes start.

If you use Condor, or have long-running computational jobs, you should shut down your jobs during both outages.

First outage: Wednesday, Aug 22, 10:00am-12:00 noon.

This outage will affect the Computational file server, for data under /z/Comp and /z/DW. Your home directories should continue to be available during this outage, but regular users of computational space with customized environments might run into timeouts.

Second outage: Thursday, Aug 23, 11:00am-1:00pm.

This updates the main userspace and project directories under /ua (including the Z: and Q: drives) and /z/Proj. Normal work will not be possible during this outage.
