Recently we have been observing a very large number of ECC errors on
aspartame's RAM. This is causing numerous stability and performance issues
with respect to user authentication and network file systems. We are
scheduling emergency downtime on this machine to replace the faulty memory
module(s) before the problem becomes uncorrectable.
Maintenance will take place on Friday, May 29, 2015. Due to the critical
nature of this server, as a precaution we are scheduling downtime for the
entire day to ensure that the upgrade is completed correctly.
Files on /users (including home directories and web content) will be
unavailable during the maintenance. In addition, it will not be possible to
log in to CSC machines until some time after the repairs are completed.
