Another System Outage on Tuesday

Once again we are going to need to take the NHU-PAC offline so that we can move equipment around in preparation for the new server. We got everything moved last week into what we thought would be a workable arrangement only to discover when the server came out of its boxes and racking began that the rails for the new server were too long for the rack we planned to put it in. (Yes, I now know to check this ahead of time. By the time this server install is done I will have learned a lot of stuff that can go wrong and needs to be checked on.)

The last Tuesday of the month is our regularly scheduled day to restart the servers so we will do the work Tuesday morning. It will be later than the usual restart, however as numerous people, including some in Utah, need to be involved.

The NHU-PAC will be shut down on Tuesday, November 29, 2011 at around 9:30am and will be down for as long as it takes to get the various machines swapped out. I would expect an hour or two, but we won't know for sure until we get there.

Sorry for the inconvenience. As always, check this blog for updated info.
