Some core pieces of the central UVM cluster will be down for hardware
upgrades starting at 8AM on Saturday November 22nd, until roughly 11AM.
We will be completely replacing our core SAN/RAID array with a faster
array. This provides storage for home directories, email, and web data.
This upgrade requires we take most of our storage off-line for a couple of
hours to install new pathing software and connect the new storage. The
downtime will affect:
o all central UVM email (imap,pop,webmail,pine) will be unavailable.
o most pieces of www.uvm.edu will be unavailable (just top level will
o shell access to UNIX cluster will be unavailable.
o PC and Macintosh file sharing will be unavailable.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
