Wean Machine Room Air Conditioning Outage 11/29/12

Date: Thursday, November 29, 2012

Time: 5:00 AM - 7:00 AM EST

Services Affected:SCS Cluster Compute Nodes


FMS will be performing maintenance on the electrical switch gear that provides power to air conditioning units and lighting on the 3rd and 4th floors of Wean Hall. As a result, the Wean Hall machine room will be without air conditioning for approximately 30 minutes starting at 6AM on November 29th.

To avoid overheating the servers, SCS Computing Facilities will initiate a partial shutdown of equipment located in the Wean machine room. Compute nodes on many of the compute clusters will be powered off before the air conditioning outage to reduce the heat load in the room. Cluster owners will be notified in a separate mailing.

Please contact the SCS Help Desk at x8-4231 or send mail to if you have any questions about this maintenance.

Thank you for your attention,

SCS Help Desk
