NIRD-TOS maintenance is active

Dear NIRD and NIRD Toolkit user: NIRD-TOS is currently down and will remain unavailable until Wednesday 12:00. We are replacing all cables during the next coupe of days.

Note that NIRD-home is also not available during that time.

All remote mounts on Fram, Saga and Betzy using NIRD-TOS will be unavailable until downtime is over

Downtime for NIRD-TOS (including toolkit) and Fram 2nd November- 6th November

We will have downtime the following week to try again to replace all internal cables in NIRD-TOS and Fram storage systems.

NIRD-TOS (Including the toolkit) will be down from 08:00 Monday 2nd November to wednesday 4th 12:00

Fram will be down from Wednesday 4th 08:00 until Friday 6th 12:00

There is still a chance that the downtime will not happen, but proper notification will be given in the opslog. Unfortunately the current situation with Covid-19 makes it difficult to make detailed plans.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

Downtime for NIRD_TOS and Fram is postponed

The downtime for NIRD-TOS on 26th October until 29th October is cancelled and the downtime for Fram from 28th October until 29th of October is cancelled.

New dates for the downtime will be announced monday 26th or tuesday 27th.

During the downtime we will replace all internal cables between disk controllers and disk enclosures. The firmware upgrade two weeks ago helped a lot, but we are still seeing ccommunication errors so the decision is to remove all cables and replace them.

There will be a scheduled downtime for Fram and NIRD during week 42.

The downtime will start on Monday 12th at 08:00 and last until Thursday 15th at 15:00. Parts of the systems may be available during this period

The Downtime on monday is primarily for testing UPS and power facility in Fram datacenter, but we will at the same time start installing new firmware for all storage systems in Tromsø and NIRD Trondheim.
