|Brief limited network interruption tonight (27 Feb 2014) around 8 pm|
|Article # 82 - Posted by George Perkins on 2014-02-27 15:40:44|
Network access to many of the P-A and MMG Departments' central services will be interrupted briefly this evening (Thursday, 27 February 2014) at or shortly after 8:00 pm. The systems will continue to run, but one of the primary network switches serving the P-A server room and the section of the BPS Building in its vicinity requires a short down time for a configuration change and reboot.
It is anticipated that the overall network outage will last 5 to 10 minutes. It is possible that systems served directly by the component requiring the configuration change may be disconnected for an additional 10 to 15 minutes; these do not include any of the server room systems.
Building networking services not requiring direct continuous connections to the systems in the server room should not be affected.

On Monday, 26 August 2013, starting at about 10:10 am, many of the P-A Departmental web sites will be down for a short time (we expect it to be less than 30 minutes) to replace a failing component in one of the servers. These will include the main P-A web site, this support site, the Science Theatre site, and several others.

|One of the 3 exchange server database servers will be down for the evening to expand the database storage volumes which takes some time. There are two other available servers to handle requests but you may occasionally have trouble connecting. If so give it a little time and try again. Thanks.|
