Short-term maintenance downtime

Monday, February 2nd, 2015

UPDATE 23:00 - maintenance finished, queued mails have been delivered.

As a probable aftermath of last week's power outage we are experiencing some issues with the file system on our home directory server which can only be repaired offline. We therefore schedule a maintenance window

Today, Monday Feb 2, 2015, starting at 22:00

The duration of the downtime cannot be estimated but should not exceed two hours. During this time you will not be able to access your home folder or receive new D-PHYS email. All incoming mail will be queued for later processing.

Thank you for your understanding.

Home Directories Outage

Thursday, July 22nd, 2010

For reasons still unknown our home directory server fulen stopped serving any files via NFS at about 5:20 pm. This stopped most active Linux logins. In order to restore functionality we had to reboot the file server. As of 5:35 pm fulen is again functioning.

Unfortunately, due to the necessary reboot we cannot fully assess the reason for the incident. It follows a history of poor performance that we have been investigating intensly for the last couple of weeks. We are still trying to find the ultimate cause.

We apologise for the inconvenience.
