Hello CSC Members,
Below are some updates from the CSC Systems Committee that directly impact system availability.
We will be taking corn-syrup down on Monday, November 16th around 2:30 till end of day for scheduled maintenance. During that time we will be swapping out the root file system and will be removing old packages. If you notice any packages you use day-to-day are missing after this time, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
High-fructose-corn-syrup is currently suffering from an undiagnosed and unpredictable hardware failure. Feel free to use the system but we are unable to guarantee its stability.
/scratch currently has a failing drive and the Systems Committee is looking at replacing it in the future. We hope to maintain the data, but this is a reminder that you should not store irreplaceable data in /scratch.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Systems Committee at email@example.com.
Jordan Pryde CSC Systems Administrator and the CSC Systems Committee
