Time: Dec 27th, 2016, about 9 a.m - 5 p.m.
Affected: Print service, SAMBA service
Impact: Services are not available
Due to complex system maintenance tasks, the GWDG print service will not be available during the stated period. Also affected are all network shares with names like \\samba.gwdg.de\… and \\gwdg-print.gwdg.de\ … provided by the SAMBA server samba.gwdg.de. As an alternative solution samba2.gwdg.de with share names like \\samba2.gwdg.de\… and \\gwdg-print2.gwdg.de\… can be used.
Due to the time scale, the maintenance work is not carried out in the regular maintenance window on Thursdays from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., but in the days between Christmas and New Year when many users are on holidays.
