Maintenance work: Maintenance of the NetApp system for the university’s group shares on 06/12/2018

Message-Id: 201806071409
Time: 06/12/2018, 18:00 pm – 20:00 pm
Affected: Group drives of the university, pre-clinic
Impact: None, if necessary CIFS-shares must be reconnected

Due to an upgrade necessary to remove a firmware bug and preparatory work to replace the current NetApp MetroCluster environment, maintenance work on the existing NetApp system for the university’s group shares must be carried out from 6 p.m. on Tuesday, June 12, 2018. Although this work will be carried out online, without interruption of operation due to corresponding redundancies, the existing CIFS-connections may be terminated twice due to the necessary cluster failovers (limitations of the CIFS-protocol).

Unfortunately, the availability of our service provider did not allow us to carry out this work in the maintenance window on Thursday.
