from the stay at home dept.
This Saturday, 4th of October 2008, we will move most of the D-PHYS servers to the new server room in the HIT building. This results in a downtime of nearly all ISG D-PHYS services from approx. 9am to approx. 6pm, including but not limited to file servers, mail server, web server, authentication servers, backup servers, etc. DHCP will continue to work.
Update, Saturday, 20:00: Nearly all services are back again from the new server room in the HIT building. Update 21:00: ftp.phys, webhome, the FlexLM license server and the Condor server are back, too. Update 00:40: The performance and stability issues with the home directory file server are solved, too.
Among others the move affects the following services which cannot be used on Saturday:
You will be able to work locally on your laptop unless you need files from your D-PHYS home directory or group drive, but *.dhcp.phys.ethz.ch hostnames won't work on Saturday either.
