Affects Linux users

On the morning of Saturday, December 16, 2017, the file server serving our compute servers, including mammoth and the ngrid02-ngrid32 machines, will be offline for maintenance. During that time, these compute servers will not be usable due to lacking access to essential files, such as home directories. We may need to reboot them. Exact time and duration of the downtime are unknown; we expect downtime between 15 minutes and a few hours.

For a selective audience

When a change impacts a smaller, known set of users, we usually notify them by email.

For IT Committee members

We communicate planned disruptions or changes to the IT Committee members, who represent the different groups within the department in IT matters.
