We have arranged with campus facilities to receive generator power for 288 and 290 Soda so that we can continue to provide IT services to the outside world while Soda is dark. As such, no interruptions to IRIS services outside Soda Hall are expected at this time. However, due to many electrical load variables it is possible that we may need to shut down some services without notice during the maintenance window.
Power to research server rooms 420A and 287 will be lost and the sysadmins of those rooms are coordinating a full system shutdown.
For sysadmins of machines in 340 Soda, you will also need to shut down your machines. We recommend doing so before midnight.

This maintenance was cancelled at the last minute due to a failure of our server room UPS, which introduced unacceptable risk and prevented the project from going forward as planned.
We will need to re-schedule the work with campus facilities and high voltage for some time after the new year.
