Mesa Lab / CISL Data Center - Shutdown Announcement

On Saturday, October 15th, 2011 the NCAR / CISL Data Center will be shut down to facilitate preventative maintenance on select infrastructure support systems.  This is the normal Fall season down time for this purpose.  Please note this activity is a complete shutdown with some minor exceptions listed below, scheduled for 0600 hrs to 1800 hrs. (6 a.m. to 6 p.m.).  Some computing systems, depending on their function will begin their shutdown Friday afternoon / evening and the supercomputer systems will begin their shut down at 0001.  Please make arrangements accordingly.

 Once all maintenance work is completed, the systems will be brought back up in their order of dependency.  CISL and FM&S (Facilities Management & Sustainability) maintain the twelve hour window to accomplish all tasks at hand.

 Basic networking for phone service will be available for the Mesa Lab during most of this maintenance window, however intermittent outages may occur. 

 Due to year end closing and the pending NSF Management Review, a few selected services will remain available for F&A, President’s Council members, NCAR Executive Committee members and Review Team members.

 Please remember to shut down your office systems and/or work station at the Mesa Lab before leaving work on Friday 10/14/2011.

Will this event be webcast to the public by NCAR|UCAR?:
