Resolved: CAEN/DC Lab Closure - Friday, July 19

posted Jun 26, 2013, 9:29 AM by Jamie Schrader   [ updated Jul 31, 2013, 7:44 AM ]

Update: The storage migration finished early, so all CAEN computer labs were opened early on Sunday, July 21 at 8:30 a.m.

All CAEN Labs will be closed from 6 p.m. on July 19, 2013 until 8 a.m. on July 22. In addition, all computers that run the CAEN Lab Software Environment, including those at the Duderstadt Center, ITS sites, and Virtual Sites, will be unavailable during this time.

Over the weekend of Friday, July 19, 2013, CAEN will be migrating all Windows Home Directories (a.k.a. the “N:” drive) to a new storage service operated by ITS. This lab closure and service outage is necessary to ensure that all data is migrated, that no user data is lost, and that all CAEN computers receive software updates necessary for this change.
