KACB Power Maintenance

WHAT?S HAPPENING?
All TSO core critical services will be unavailable, including DNS, Active Directory, LDAP, home directories, and the main web sites for CoC, CS, CSE, and IC.


WHEN IS IT HAPPENING?
Between 7:00 AM and 1:00 PM on Saturday, May 12, 2012.


WHY IS IT HAPPENING?
There will be a two-day partial power outage in KACB on Saturday, May 12, and Sunday, May 13, 2012. The work involves corrective maintenance on 31 KACB electrical breakers, to address incorrect coordination settings and ratings/CT's mismatches. Work will begin at 7:00 AM and complete at 5:00 PM each day.


WHO IS AFFECTED?
All users of CoC networks and core services and those working in KACB. During this maintenance, power to some building outlets and lights will be generally unstable and at times unavailable. The lack of the TSO core critical services will cause all other computing servers, services, desktops, websites, etc., on the CoC network to become generally unstable, including systems in CCB and TSRB.


WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DO?
Affected users should save their work and logout prior to the maintenance period. Those with systems in KACB should shut them down before leaving for the weekend. If this maintenance will cause undue hardship, please let TSO know by emailing helpdesk@cc.gatech.edu.


WHO SHOULD YOU CONTACT FOR QUESTIONS?
