Downtime for Upgrades During Reading Week
I will be upgrading hardware and software on the primary department server over reading week. Most services will be up through the upgrades, but there will be periods of five to fifteen minutes on Monday afternoon and Tuesday afternoon when email is down and the workstations do not respond; there should be only very brief web interruptions.
Once the upgrades are complete, we will have more storage and backup capacity, more flexibility, and - we expect - a more stable server.
