Major Outage June 9-12

From the OIT Outage Announcement mailing list:

An extended power outage is planned in the 87 Prospect machine room from 7:00 p.m. on Friday, June 9, through 6:00 a.m. on Monday, June 12, 2006 to install a new electrical transformer.
OIT’s 87 Prospect computing facility, which is currently at maximum electrical capacity, will require installation of this large additional transformer to meet the University’s growing computing needs.
This machine room power outage will affect all OIT computing services. In addition, departmental services provided by servers hosted in the machine room at 87 Prospect Avenue will be affected. The campus community should expect central computing services to be unavailable throughout the outage.

The power outage will affect this weblog server. All blogs and the Movable Type admin interface will be unavailable during this time. We will post more information if it becomes available.
