Service outage for network file server maintenance – May 1-2

The Core Computing Division will take advantage of the scheduled beam downtime by performing system maintenance on the BlueArc network file-server from 7 p.m. on Tuesday, May 1, until 6 a.m. on Wednesday, May 2. This maintenance will affect a variety of computing services, including the ES&H Section and Computing Sector websites, DocDB, InDico and various Windows project and home directories that are stored on the Bluearc network file server.

For a list of systems impacted, see the Fermilab Service Desk announcement here. Other services not listed here may also be affected. These user communities have received separate notifications.

Some sites or services may appear to be available during the maintenance period. However, we recommend not accessing them from 7 p.m. on Tuesday, May 1, until after 6 a.m. on Wednesday, May 2. If files stored on the network file server will be needed during the maintenance period, users should save the files to their local computer before 7 p.m. on May 1.

If you have any questions about this outage, please contact the Service Desk.
