home server maintenance
Scheduled maintenance will be taking place on our home.phys.ethz.ch file server on Wednesday, July 12, starting at 16:00. The service will be down for approximately 4 hours. We will be replacing the hardware with all-flash storage and upgrade the base system.
Update 18:15: the new home server is open for business. Most SMB + NFS clients will not have survived the 2h downtime and will have to be rebooted. We'll go through the most obvious ones, but if yours won't work, try restarting.
All home directories (Linux, Windows and Mac, SMB and NFS) will be unavailable during this time.
For emergency cases, you'll have read-only access to the backups as described here.
This migration will mark the end of the huge storage migration project of 2023. Thanks for your patience.
