The filestore affected is user filestore (userFS), which you may know as your home directory, or M: and H: drives. While the work takes place, it will be unavailable for up to 30 minutes, but your device may not reconnect when the downtime ends:
Wherever possible, we advise that you log off your machine the night before (Wednesday 23 September ), and don't use it again until the work has completed.
There will also be disruption to the www-users.york.ac.uk user web service, research0, teaching0, and YARCC, which will be unavailable throughout the downtime. Any long running jobs on research0 and teaching0 will be stopped: if the data in the job hasn't been checkpointed, the job will need to be re-run. Please contact the IT Support Office if you need advice about this.
Shared filestores (Storage, FlexFS and ProjectFS) will not be affected.
If you have any questions about this work, please contact the Library & IT Help Desk.
