  2. Aug. 24, 2017Netapp Storage software upgrade

    Teaching and Research Storage Software Upgrade:

    We are upgrading storage software from ONTAP 8.3.2P5 to 9.0P3 on Sunday Aug 27 at 9AM for both the teaching and the research environments. This should take approximately two hours.

    There should be no impact to the end user, but you could notice some pauses during the process. 

    If you have any issue accessing storage during this time please log off, wait for some time and then log back on.

    Contact MFCF for any questions or problems, mfcfhelp@uwaterloo.ca
