Nolij Server Move

Tue, 09/09/2014 - 2:24pm

Primary Contact: Jill Swenson,

The NFS server hosting Nolij files will be physically moved to a different rack on September 10 between 6:00PM and 11:59PM. The Nolij application will be halted, the server moved and the application re-started and confirmed operational. The timeframe has been confirmed with Nolij application users. This is triggered by a need to move different equipment into the rack this server currently occupies. This is considered a low-risk activity, but can be reversed, if necessary.

Nolij Unavailable 6:00-11:59PM Wednesday September 10

Tue, 09/09/2014 - 2:17pm

Nolij will be unavailable between 6PM and 11:59PM on Wednesday September 10 due to a scheduled equipment move.
