All computer and network services will be unavailable from 7:00 AM until 4:00 PM on Saturday, June 10, 2006.
OIS and Facilities Services staff and outside representatives will conduct a test of the emergency generator that powers the OIS Server and Network Operations Center. All systems will need to be powered down for much of the testing period.
In preparation for emergency generator testing on Saturday, an off-site DNS was added as a tertiary server.
The database systems went offline sometime of 3 June this weekend when rainier and crystal lost connections to several disk volumes. The disks were remounted, and the databases were restarted. The DBA was called at 9 AM this morning.
The www2 webserver also became unresponsive because it lost connection to the database. The webserver was restarted once the database came online, restoring service.
