|The annual transfer switch and user generator test has been scheduled with IPF (formerly Physical Plant) for May 15th at approximately 9:30 AM. We expect that all power in the building will go off at ~ 9:30 AM (plus or minus a few minutes) and be off for about 30 minutes. Only outlets, lights etc. that have emergency power from the building generators will be powered during that time. Please remember that there will be no lights in the restrooms, landline phones will not work, but the access control systems should work. There will be no internet or network service, and the department computing resources (U: R: S: and printing) will not be available -- even if you have a laptop running on battery power. Please plan your work accordingly. This is an opportunity to test how equipment reacts to a power failure. In order to prevent open files from being corrupted, we recommend that you shut down computing equipment prior to the test. Department servers have emergency power and should not be affected.|

|Server maintenance will be done on the PHY-AST Exchange servers on Wednesday, March 18 starting at 6 am. This should be done by 7 am. For those of you with PHY-AST email accounts, if your OWA or Outlook client reports “server connection lost”, simply retry what you’re doing and you will be able to instantly reconnect. For those of you with clients using IMAP connections, please do not alter your temporary settings at this time. For those of you who forward email from the PHY-AST servers, you will notice no interruption. ===== Done. 7:20 am.|
