Emergency operation for HRZ
Because of a mechanical failure in the central large cooling devices
we have to shut down several computers and peripheral devices in
favour of central services for the next days.
We expect the lately installed new local cooling devices for HRZ
will be put into operation until the end of next week, and hence
the failure in the central large cooling devices will have no more
impact on the central computer rooms of HRZ.
Services under concern:
- All printing devices (large format, color, black/white), and
all printer queues will be stopped.
- Computing clusters and compute servers will be shut down.
- The user room II (P.09.17) is closed.
The Network, Mail, WWW, File Server and Backup will be kept under
normal operation. These services will be kept alive through additional
personal resources at the weekend.
Because of increasing humidity and high temperatures there may
be temporal interrupts of operation in the course of the next dyas.
In the consequence there may be disasters especially of hard disk
and tape drives.
We beg you pardon for any inconvenience.
Yours HRZ team
