CESR Network Isolation test tomorrow, 24-Apr-2018

On Tuesday, 24-Apr-2018, there will be a CESR Network Isolation test from approximately noon-1pm. This is necessary to ensure CESR operations can continue without any dependencies on other CLASSE networks or resources. During this time, you will be unable to access CESR Online resources (the CESR_ONLINE filesystem, the cesrwww web server, etc.) from non-CESR systems. Likewise, from a CESR system you will be unable to access off-line resources (public home disks, /nfs/acc/user, etc.).

CLASSE Managed Windows 7 Update - could affect network access

CLASSE is applying the April patch for Windows 7 tonight. This is to mitigate a currently exploited Windows software vulnerability. This patch in earlier forms has been reported to reset the IP address for static IP address assignments. We have not found this to be an issue in our testing with this particular version of the patch.
  • This patch is Windows 7. Windows 10 is not affected.
  • There is a small chance of network problems with this update - let us know immediately if you lose network settings.
    • LNSProtected is NOT affected.

  • The Xerox Phaser 7800 color printer will be moving this week to Newman #123 from Newman #120



General network and server maintenance will occur every Tuesday from 12 noon to 2:00 PM. The CLASSE-IT group will always announce any expected disruptions in our NewsLetter and via CLASSE-IT-NEWS-L, but with the size and complexity of our network there is always the potential for something to go wrong. We will do our best to contain all network maintenance and planned outages to Tuesdays from 12 noon to 2:00 PM.

Unless other arrangements have been made, CLASSE-managed Windows systems may be updated and rebooted on Tuesday morning at 2:00 AM, so please avoid critical or lengthy operations at that time. For more details, please see SystemExpectations.
