Planned Downtime for Research IT Services due to Essential Maintenance
First posted: Friday, 25 September 2020, 5pm
The firewall used to access the Research IT network and all the services hosted by Research IT needs to be upgraded.
This essential upgrade work will take place from 8am until 11am on Thursday 8th of October.
There will be a further "at risk period" until the close of business on that day. During the "at risk period", services that Research IT host may be unavailable if we need to carry out mitigation works in the unlikely event of an issue arising with the upgrade.
During the upgrade, all services that Research IT host will be temporarily unavailable, including:
- Access to all HPC clusters (jobs will remain running during the downtime)
- Access to all servers Research IT host on behalf of research groups
- Access to all websites and other web services Research IT host
- Internet access from offices connected to the Research IT network on the 2nd floor of the Lloyd Building
