Power outage - Feb. 11

Update: As of 11 AM Sunday, power had been restored, and the web server and database server were started back up.

The Department of Facilities requires an electrical power outage at the main University data center to install new power cables from the data center to an electrical substation. This work is necessary to improve the electrical infrastructure and capacity at the data center.

To minimize the impact on the University community, the electrical work has been scheduled for Sunday, February 11, from 12:01 a.m. to noon.

This outage will directly impact the Princeton University Blog Service. All weblogs and the Movable Type administrative interface will be inaccessible during this time. Blog service should be restored some time between 6 AM and noon EST.

Outage Information: Most central computing services unavailable
