8/5/13: Monthly Maintenance, Wednesday, August 7

On Wednesday, August 7, 2013, from 04:00 - 15:00, MSI staff will perform scheduled maintenance and upgrades to the network and various systems.

During this maintenance period, we will be performing a site-wide maintenance. Most MSI systems will be down for a short period of time; the systems down for maintenance include:

  • MSI networking -- external connections will be intermittently unavailable from 4 am - 6 am.
  • All infrastructure systems will be briefly down for patches (login, labs, NX, Windows infrastructure, databases and web servers) 
  • Primary storage (Panasas) will be unavailable 5am - 6am for patching
  • Itasca, Calhoun, Koronis and Cascade will be unavailable during the morning for patches and system maintenance.


Systems status is always available on our Status page.
