“Power was just lost again at 3:40pm Wednesday, 4/10/13. We will have to triage the number of machines we allow on in this room once we restore power. Then we still have a power shutdown on Friday to replace the faulty breaker.”
Mailed earlier today to the Cory Sysadmins maillist:
“Campus is planning a shutdown of Electrical Services to Computer Machine Room 165 and the East Side 1st floor of Cory Hall on Friday, 4/12/2013, between the hours of 9am-Noon to replace the faulty breaker. We are currently operating critical equipment only in room 165. In fact we insist no additional equipment be turned back on at this time until after the repairs on Friday can be made. If you are able to shut down equipment that may not be needed between now and Friday, we ask that you do so.”

Update 9: Campus Senior Superintendent of Electric Shops has agreed to provide temporary power to insure there is no more unscheduled power outages for this space. We anticipate work to commence immediately to put the temporary power in place, which will likely take several hours.

Report from our Building Manager, Mark Davis:
“Power has been transferred over to a temporary breaker which should not trip. System administrators are welcome to come to room 165 Cory and turn on your machines. We do not anticipate any more outages since we are now switched over to a different temporary breaker.
“As Scott mentioned, we are working towards a scheduled shutdown in the very near future to replace the breaker that is faulty.”
