WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DO?
Affected users should save their work prior to the maintenance period and be prepared for service interruption during the maintenance window.
Any manual backup or restore jobs with the CrashPlan servers that have not finished before the maintenance will need to be restarted after the maintenance period.
Users should avoid sending mail to Mailman mailing lists during the maintenance period.  Mail sent to mailman lists during the maintenance period will not be queued and will need to be resent.

WHO SHOULD YOU CONTACT FOR QUESTIONS?
Feel free to contact the TSO Help Desk (CCB 212, 404.894.7065, helpdesk@cc.gatech.edu).
