The CSC will be having scheduled downtime on the following hosts starting
Sunday, February 3rd, 12PM:
Services affected will be the following:
- member home directories
- club hosting
- mail delivery (SMTP)
As part of our continued expansion of service, we have recently acquired
network storage device, and will be migrating user home directories to this
device. This will allow us to host more concurrent users (both members and
clubs), in addition to supporting snapshots of user home directories to
facilitate backup capabilities.
We are aware of the importance of having high service availability to not
only our members, but to the organizations whose websites we host as well.
As such, we have decided to make your data _read-only_ but still accessible
during the course of migration. This means that while you will still be able
to log in, you will be _unable_ to make any modifications to your files
during this time period. This also means that any mail you may normally
receive will be _delayed_ by up to 24 hours. It is also important to also
note that database services will still be accessible during the course of
We have allotted 24 hours for the process of migration. We expect all
services to be up by Monday, February 4th, 12PM.
To help us ensure a smooth migration, we ask that you please end any
long-running jobs that write to files in your home directory. We cannot make
any guarantees that these jobs will perform correctly during the migration.
