Retirement of legacy file systems - Tuesday October 7

After repeated disk failures on a decades old file server, the CLASSE IT group will be archiving the following file systems to tape and removing them from service on Tuesday October 7. Any data from these file systems can be restored as needed with a ServiceRequest. Note that the list of filesystems has grown since last week's announcement.

X2Go replacing NX

X2Go has replaced NX as CLASSE's solution for remote linux desktops. For more information, please see X2Go.

Due to repeated failures, the NX server, lnx200, will be shutdown on Tuesday 10/14.



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.
