Due to a fire threatening our transformers, PG&E has advised campus we will be losing power.
IRIS is taking proactive steps to shut down as much equipment safely before we totally lose power.
See https://www.nixle.us/9HHZX for the warning from UCPD.

We will have a full system shutdown on Thursday, December 22nd at 7:30 AM to perform necessary fire and emergency power testing in our server rooms. The entire EECS network and all hosted resources will be offline during this maintenance.
This will affect networking in the following locations:
Wired and wireless networks offline:
* Soda Hall
* Cory Hall
* Sutardja Dai Hall
* Jacobs Hall
Wireless networks offline, wired remains online:
* Blum Hall
* Calvin Lab
Hosted resources such as the EECS website, file servers, etc. will be offline and globally inaccessible.
The facilities maintenance window is scheduled from 7:30 AM to 1 PM, but we anticipate the network and critical services should be back by 11AM if all goes well.
The intent is to perform these tests annually going forward; however we will learn from this year’s procedure and aim to keep more critical services online in the future.
If you have any questions about this maintenance, please contact email@example.com.

Delivery is expected Monday for our new UPS which will be installed in the 290 Soda Hall server room. Some services will be down for short periods on Tuesday while they are moved off of room power and onto temporary power. Later in the week, there will be a second outage while those machines are moved onto the new UPS. Additionally, there may be a longer outage of our storage systems while some upgrades are done.
While I realize that this post is somewhat vague, a lot depends on exactly when the UPS is delivered and how long it takes to install it. I will be posting more refined notes to narrow down the scope of what services will be out (and when) as time goes on.
While we realize that there may be some inconveniences for some, please bear with us as we strive update our services and minimize outages for the future
IMAP/mail, home/project, Windows services (AD/WINS/printing), LDAP/NIS/DNS, DHCP and most other IDSG and IMG services will be affected. We will try to keep some basic network services running (DHCP, DNS/NIS), possibly in a reduced capacity.
While EECS-Secure, EECS-Guest and EECS-Open wireless LANS will be out of service during this time, the EECS and AirBears wireless LANS will remain operational during the outage.
The reason for this extended downtime is multi fold. The first is to repair the UPS that failed a couple of weeks back. The repaired unit will be placed back on line and extensive testing must be done to ensure it’s operation before we can depend on the UPS again. The second is to move data around which will allow us to remove from service a piece of software used to manage storage. This software is no longer under development and we need to remove our dependency on it. Lastly, some routine maintenance will be done which can only be done when systems are down. These are the kind of things that can only be done between semesters and we ask for you understanding during this disruption in service.
While the stated outage is from 10:00AM to 9:00PM, it may not take that long. This is a worst case scenario. If possible, services will be brought up sooner than 9:00 PM.
