On Tuesday, 27-Aug-2019, our general-purposes Linux login node, lnx201, will be DOWN for one hour, starting at 10:00 AM. In addtion, the CLASSE GRID script will not be functional during the lnx201 outage.

SAMBA Maintenance: Tuesday, 27-Aug-2019 @ 10:00 AM

On Tuesday, 27-Aug-2019, at 10:00 AM, there will be a brief outage of the CLASSE samba service as we attempt to resolve the intermittent printing and file access problems observed in the past two weeks. During this time, the CLASSE central filesystems can still be accessed directly via Linux and Globus, as well as via SFTP or SCP on Windows.

ScreenConnect Upgrade: Tuesday, 27-Aug-2019 @ 10:00 AM

Cornell Dropbox Upgrade and Name Change

On Friday, 23-Aug-2019, Cornell Dropbox was upgraded. Users will see the maximum size of files that can be transferred increase from 2 GB to 5 GB. Also, Cornell Dropbox will be renamed "Cornell Secure File Transfer" and its website URL will become sft.cornell.edu. For more information, see here.



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.
