On June 12th, the inspector for the fourth floor renovation project at in ICS 1 informed us that they will need to perform a complete power down of the building for approximately 1 hour in order to add an electrical panel in the 4th floor electrical room. He has informed us that the building generator will also be unavailable to power emergency circuits that are running mission critical services such as mail, web, databases, and storage.
Most, if not all, of the computing in the ICS Data Center will be powered down to accommodate this request. We will begin powering down non-critical services on 7/13. Mission critical services will be brought down prior to scheduled out on 7/14. We will begin bringing all services back online immediately after work is complete. We will emphasize mission-critical services, followed by services that impact the largest number of researchers and staff, and finally instructional services.
Although we intend to have all services restored as quickly as possible, some services may take longer than expected due to unanticipated equipment.
