Please be advised of upcoming preventative maintenance being performed on the SoME Data Center UPS from 8 AM to 5 PM on Saturday, November 14, 2020.  No impact is expected and services should continue to run as normal. However, in the unlikely event of power loss to the data center, most services would be disrupted and a data center systems recovery would be required. Again, this is unlikely to happen and no impact to campus is expected.

The maintenance date was selected to ensure minimal potential impact to campus operations and events. This preventative maintenance is needed to re-establish network connection for important proactive monitoring purposes. The UPS vendor requires the UPS to be disabled during this maintenance event. Please note that this process has been performed twice a year for the past three years without incident.
