Intermittent downtime for maintenance

On December 16, we rewired parts of our network between 5pm and 7pm, resulting in intermittent unavailability for OCF services. We believe that the end of the semester would be a less intrusive time to make changes, especially since the lab is closed until spring semester.

OCF, as with other student groups in Eshleman Hall, will be moved out of the building in August before it is demolished as part of Bears Initiative. We are aggressively consolidating our hardware (reducing the number of physical servers), since space for our hardware after the move will be limited, and working to prevent these changes from having an adverse effect on performance and reliability. We apologize for the inconvenience.
