The end of VMS at CLASSE
After many years of service, all CLASSE computers which are running the legacy VMS operating system will be shut down this summer, about two months from now. An exact date has not yet been decided. This includes LNS61 and LNS62 plus the CESR VMS control cluster: CESR27, CESR23 and their friends. We will be performing a trial shutdown of VMS on July 26.
If you know of any necessary VMS software or procedures which have not yet been migrated to Linux, please notify the CLASSE IT group immediately.
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
