Maintenance for the central network storage system referred to as Storage.vt.edu, skipper.cc.vt.edu and minnow.cc.vt.edu is scheduled for Sunday, June 29, 2014, from 8am to 10am. This will include hardware maintenance on 'minnow' that requires a reboot while *not* in failover mode, thereby interrupting services dependent on that machine.
Along with this maintenance, the NetApp authentication for Windows will move from the AIS child domain to the CNTRLSRVS child domain in the Hokies Active Directory. Windows users of NetApp on both 'minnow' and 'skipper' will lose connection to their network attached storage or NAS shares during the maintenance and will need to reconnect after it's completed.
Services that rely on the Netapp and will be down during the maintenance:
Services that should not be affected during the Netapp maintenance:
Technology-enhanced Learning and Online Strategies
Ensemble Content Management System-Publishing only
Filebox - All fileboxes
Following the scheduled maintenance, problems should be reported to 4Help at 540-231-4357 or via http://4help.vt.edu.
