ALL ICS SERVICES are affected
The inspector for the fourth floor renovation project in ICS 1 informed us that a complete power down of the ICS building is necessary in order to install a new electrical panel in the 4th floor electrical room. The building's emergency backup generator will also need to be offline in order to perform this work.
This means that 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 7/29/2020. Facilities will be providing a generator during this period do keep some mission critical services up, the rest will be brought down prior to scheduled outage at 0700 on 7/30/2020. We will begin bringing all services back online immediately after work is complete. Emphasis will be placed on mission-critical services, followed by services that impact the largest number of researchers and staff, and followed by 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 failures.
