Tomorrow's Power Outage, Workstations & Backups
As described in my earlier posting, I will be shutting down all servers before the power outages tomorrow morning and Sunday evening. I will also be scheduling shutdowns of the stand-alone desktop linux workstations which we manage, including the grad-student/post-doc Dell GX 270s. I strongly recommend that you shutdown your Windows or OS X workstation before the power outages.
I am going to disable all backups but mathserv tonight since we won't have time to backup all systems.
