January 18 maintenance will affect WebMail, file access

This news item expired January 18, 2005. It may contain out-of-date information.
On Tuesday, January 18, a scheduled maintenance will affect access to WebMail, home directories, Iowa State's homepage, public homepages, the virtual hosting web servers, and any other services that rely on AFS filespace. During the maintenance period, these services will not be available.

Beginning at 6:00 am, the AFS servers will be restarted with an update to the fileservers; the update decreases vulnerability to specific security issues.

The outage should last no later than 7:30 am, and may be completed earlier if all goes well.
