78836 ICS Data Center and CS2 Network Closet Outage
- Downtime Notice: #78836: ICS Data Center and CS2 Network Closet (Work Order 5112353)
- Date: May 4th, 2021 (Tentative)
- Duration: Beginning at 1700 and lasting approximately 12 hours
Campus facilities scheduling an electrical power shut down for the ICS building and CS2 building. Most research and instructional equipment during this power will not have power and will be turned off earlier in the day.
Network: Core data center and building network will remain online during this event. This does include top of rack switches for hosts that are not on UPS/generator power.
Computing: Core ICS services will remain online (i.e. home directories, web services, email).
Environment: One of three 20 ton air conditioners will be unavailable during this period. Portable cooling units will be used to supplement the remaining air conditioners. If the portable cooling units prove unable to maintain a reasonable operating temperature we will begin shutting down non-critical infrastructure followed by hosts generated the greatest amount of heat (e.g. GPU clusters).
OIT: OIT will be mirroring our efforts to make sure that their equipment in the buildings are available during this period.
Although we will do our best to avoid downtime of core services during this period, there are many factors that may intersect unexpectedly to cause an outage. Please send email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are concerned that this work will cause a hardship on your research and we will work with campus facilities to do our best to accommodate.
