Possible Downtime on Monday

We have been alerted to a failing memory module on our web, database, and printing server and have scheduled an on-site visit by a Sun Microsystems field engineer to replace the defective memory module. Assuming that everything goes to plan, there will be a slight interruption in our web, database, and in-lab printing services around noon on Monday, November 6 as we repair our server. We are anticipating a maximum downtime of two hours.

No other OCF services should be affected (ex., mail and shell accounts). If the repair takes less than two hours, I'll use the remaining time to upgrade the system software on our server. If the repair process extends beyond the allocated time, status updates will be posted to this blog.
