When fileservice was restored after the PG&E outage last Friday, the part of the service that handles backups became non-functional. Staff are working to restore backup service as soon as possible.
Snapshots remain functional and available, providing easy access to file versions from the last 7 days. Older archive backups, from before October 9, also remain available. The broken archiving process means that backups after Oct 9 will not be available.
We make nightly copies of current fileserver data to our Disaster Recovery (DR) site at the San Diego Supercomputing Center (SDSC). This mirror of current data remains operational, and is not affected by the archive process failure.
