An IT Division maintenance day is planned for today, Tuesday, October 16th, 5:00PM to 10:00PM.  The Zimbra mail servers will be unreachable for about 15 minutes while they are restarted to apply a configuration change.  The scratch files server (jlabscr, /scratch) will be unavailable for approximately 30 minutes while additional hardware is installed.  As a result of this upgrade, central services that mount /scratch may need to be rebooted.  This includes jlabl1-4, and the public Linux systems, publ1-3.

Additionally, the MIS group's online library software, Voyager, will experience an outage.  Windows and Linux patches will be released and the following Core CUE software will be updated -- Firefox and Adobe Flash Player.  Plan on rebooting your systems as soon as is convenient once the patches have been installed.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  There has been an unexpected warning on some of the central file servers will necessitate an additional outage during this maintenance period.  During tonight's maintenance period, there will be an outage of the central /group, /site, and /apps areas (M:, K:, and L: drives) for about an hour starting at 6:00PM.

If you have any questions or concerns concerning this maintenance period, contact the IT Division Help Desk.
