March 2017 Maintenance

On Wednesday, March 1, 2017, 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. CST, MSI staff will perform scheduled maintenance and upgrades to the network and various MSI systems.

During this month's scheduled maintenance period MSI staff will be applying a Primary Storage (Panasas) update. This update IS disruptive, and as a result Primary Storage will be unavailable throughout the day.

March maintenance will include:

  • Panasas ActiveStore update
  • Scrub Mesabi: Update to new kernel and re-provision all computes
  • Windows updates: Install Windows updates on all Windows machines
  • CentOS & Debian updates for Lab machines

Systems status is always available on our Status page.
