Time: 02.04.2022, 08:00 h until 03.04.2022, 20:00 h
Affected: Group drives of the university, home directories of university employees, some GWDG services
Impact: Downtime of the affected services
On Saturday, 02.04.2021, the relocation of further NetApp systems from GWDG’s mass storage environment to the new data centre at Burckhardtweg will take place from 08:00 in the morning. These are core components of the GWDG mass storage infrastructure on which many important services depend.
The move necessitates a shutdown of the systems and thus a downtime of all dependent services. We hope that the move can be successfully completed by Saturday evening, but we cannot rule out that the work will continue through Sunday.
The following services won’t be available during the move:
– Group drives for the university institutes: wfs-<Fakultät>.top.gwdg.de (the special drives wfs-<Fakultät>-spezial.top.gwdg.de are *not* affected)
– Home directories of university staff (“P-drives”): winfs-<area>.top.gwdg.de
– Some GWDG services:
For https://meet.gwdg.de, we are still looking for an alternative that will not take the service out of operation. We will provide information on this in a separate operational announcement.
We will publish regular updates on the current status during the move and keep you informed!
