During the Tuesday, November 6th maintenance window, some maintenance will be done on the server racks housed in Struben building starting at 6.30PM. Apart from a few services noted below, this work should not be service-affecting. However, all services will be at risk during the maintenance period. This maintenance work is unrelated to the work on the Internet firewalls which will be happening at the same time.

Servers which may be affected include:
  • digitallab.fineart.ru.ac.za
  • tapelibrary.ilam.ru.ac.za
  • storage.coe.ru.ac.za
  • yoda.biosci.ru.ac.za
  • specify.albmus.ru.ac.za
  • kev.amm.ru.ac.za

In each of these cases, the affected server will be unavailable for 30 mins to an hour.

This maintenance work is being undertaken in the ITSC-approved scheduled maintenance window and should be completed well before midnight.
