Outage April 4 During Server Upgrades

This news item expired April 4, 2006. It may contain out-of-date information.
On Tuesday, April 4, between 6:00 and 7:30 am, IT Services will be upgrading
some AFS file servers. During this maintenance window, there will be an
outage of some services.

Services or resources that rely on the AFS file servers will be affected,
including WebMail, public websites, access to user files, and long-running
SAS jobs. An individual user may experience one or two 30-minute outages.

This equipment is being updated to help alleviate recurring and ongoing
problems with the file servers. We will do as many servers as we can in
this maintenance window and will complete the upgrades, if any remain
undone, on Tuesday, April 11.

If you have questions or concerns, contact the Solution Center at
or 515-294-4000.
