This Friday at 10PM we will be doing a software upgrade on the switch which provides connectivity for the EECS storage infrastructure. This upgrade is to address an issue with in-band management of the switch.
All storage services (home directories, project storage, etc.) will be briefly unavailable during the upgrade. Past experience suggests that this downtime will only last approximately five minutes. We strongly recommend that you save and close all open files in home and project spaces before 10PM on Friday. Machines with permanent NFS mounts may need to be rebooted after the maintenance is complete.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns.
