Powering down desktop computers for the holidays.

If you'll be away for an extended period of time, please do a graceful shutdown of your desktop computer. If you'll only be away for a day or two, please turn off only its display so that backups and software updates can be done while you're gone.

ILC Wiki Upgrade and Migration

On Wednesday, 12/18, at 10am the ILC Wiki will be merged into the main CLASSE Foswiki server. Once the migration is complete, you will use CLASSE usernames and passwords to login to the ILC wiki areas.

General network and server maintenance will occur every Tuesday from 12:00 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 12:00 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.
