Dispatches From The Geeks

News and Announcements from the MCS Systems Group

TCS Power Outage May 27 – 30.

Hi, all. On Friday, May 27th, at 6PM, the TCS building will be losing its power until Monday, May 30, at 3PM (expected). In order to prepare for this work, networking and servers will start being turned off at 4PM. As noted in an earlier e-mail to TCS tenants, this will mean no wired or wireless networking, as well as no VOIP phone.

MCS will be able to keep certain critical services operational during this outage. The following list of servers and services are expected to stay up with no service interruption.

* Mail, including mailing lists and RT (ticketing system), for the following domains:
accessgrid.org, alcf.anl.gov, anl-external.org, bgconsortium.org, cels.anl.gov, ci.uchicago.edu, cogkit.org, cosmea.mcs.anl.gov, earthmicrobiome.org, globus.org, globusonline.org, i2u2.org, icis.anl.gov, igsb.anl.gov, igsb.org, kbt.mcs.anl.gov, lcrc.anl.gov, mcs.anl.gov, metagenomics.anl.gov, nmpdr.org, ogce.org, terragenome.org, theseed.org

* MCS-hosted websites (including main MCS and ALCF websites), full list included at end of e-mail.

* Cryptocard logins for MCS and ALCF

Sorry for any inconvenience. Ideally, we’d have a generator to power things during an outage like this, but those are quite expensive, and as you all are no doubt aware, money isn’t growing on trees. Or shrubs. I’ve looked.

I’m thinking we can capture the various rodentia that have been in and around the building and put them in tiny generator wheels so they can earn their keep. Talk about a green initiative!

Thanks for your patience.

These websites will stay up:
