Critical software updates on the University storage servers.
What is happening?
Some file storage services will be unavailable for brief periods between 5.30pm Friday 15 January and 2am Saturday 16 January.
The areas primarily affected are:
- H Drives
- Shared drives
- Team drives
What should you do?
If you are planning to work on documents that are stored on the affected shared drives during this period, please save your work locally onto your hard drive or a USB drive. After this period, copy these files back to the shared drive to enable them to be backed up overnight.
Why is this happening?
We are installing critical software updates on the University storage servers known to us as the Isilon storage. Each storage server has to reboot during the installation.
Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.
