SUBJECT: File Server Reboots at 5AM Tuesday and Wednesday 4/14 and 4/15
Smith IT has been working with campus OIT and Novell to address stability on our file servers. After analyzing our logs, Novell has recommended a patch that addresses a known problem that caused a recent crash. We want to install this patch as soon as possible to try to prevent any further crashes on the file servers.
To this end, we will be rebooting the servers outside of our normal Friday morning maintenance window. We will install the patch and reboot the students server (MBSLAB) on Tuesday morning 4/14 at 5AM. If the patch functions as promised, we will install it on and reboot the faculty/staff server (MBSDATA) on Wednesday morning 4/15.
