January 2016 Maintenance

On Wednesday, January 6, from 5am – 4pm CST, MSI staff will perform scheduled maintenance and upgrades to the network and various systems.

During the January 2016 maintenance, MSI’s maintenance will be global and site-wide as we will take the central storage offline to attempt to finalize a file system merge. Additionally, MSI will perform a security point update to the NX server and corresponding clients.

Maintenance during this period will impact the following systems:

  • Panasas will be generally unavailable from 5am - 4pm.
  • Mesabi unavailable (firmware updates) (estimated 8 hours).
  • NoMachine (NX) upgrade.
  • Core switch updates to all systems.

Systems status is always available on our Status page.
