  1. Nov. 15, 2023MC 3015 server room shutdown Dec. 6-7

    What is happpening?

    Plant Operations needs to shut off the chilled water service that provides cooling to the MC 3015 server room for two days. As a result, we must shut down almost everything in that server room.  Most of our computing services have some replication in the M3 server room so a subset of the computing environments will remain available, but there will also be network upgrades that require brief interruptions of networking among all servers that stay up.

    When is this happening?
