A global system reservation will start at 5:00am on November 7. Jobs that cannot be completed before 5:00am on November 7 will be held until after maintenance and then started once the system returns to production status.

November maintenance will include:

  • Mesabi OS updates
  • Itasca OS updates
  • Windows OS updates

Systems status is always available on our Status page.
