Downtimes, May 19th to 23rd

There will be a loss of power to the Lloyd Building Data Centre on Saturday the 20th of May. This is part of planned works for the IT Services Disaster Recovery project.

This loss of power will necessitate the powering off of all equipment in the Lloyd Data Centre on Friday the 19th of May. The equipment will be powered back on Monday the 22nd of May.

We apologise for the inconvenience that this necessary work will cause.

Affected Services

Clusters Downtime

The following clusters are hosted in the Lloyd Building Data Centre and will be affected by this power outage:

  • Lonsdale
  • Kelvin
  • Parsons
  • TCIN

Reservations have been placed in the queue's on each of the clusters from Friday the 19th of May until the morning of Tuesday the 23rd of May.

The length of the downtime is required as there are a large number of other systems in the Data Centre that also need to powered off and back on by TCHPC. We would hope to return the clusters to service as soon as possible on Monday the 23rd.

Network Downtime

This loss of power will also result in the network maintained by Research IT on the 2nd floor of the Lloyd Building and the small number of network ports in the CRAN building that are on the Research IT network being unavailable on Saturday May 20th.

Research Office Shared Drives

The shared drives will be unavailable from 4pm on the 19th of May 2017.

It is intended they will be back in service by 11am Monday the 22nd of May.

There will be a further "at risk" period until 12pm Monday the 22nd of May during which time Research IT will take corrective action in the unlikely event it needs to be taken as a result of this downtime.

Downtime Window Starts: 2pm Friday May 19th 2017
