On Saturday, January 25th an upgrade will be performed on the CISL fileserver, requiring an outage in numerous services. Starting at 9:00am, all WEG hosted web sites and applications will be offline for an estimated 4 hours. This outage could be shorter or longer, and a more concrete estimate will be known after Friday the 17th. This includes the auth api (so logins on services such as timecard will be unavailable), SAM, the people API, all static and drupal web sites hosted by the WEG such as www2.ucar.edu and www2.ncar.ucar.edu, wiki.ucar.edu, jira.ucar.edu, subversion.ucar.edu, git.ucar.edu, and cislcustomersupport.ucar.edu.
Additionally, there will also be a shorter outage for CISL hosted email services, including the Communigate mail server (mail.ucar.edu and mail.mmm.ucar.edu), the Mail Relay, Mailman, and Mailguard services, as well as Token based authentication for external hosts located in Boulder only (gate, VPN, and NWSC will be unaffected). The start time and length of this outage have yet to be determined, but it is expected to be at least one hour.
