Switchgear Maintenance Re-scheduled: Power outage @ESSIC, eve of 11/30
By: Patrick Farrell
The ESSIC M-Square Bldg will undergo a scheduled power outage from Friday, Nov. 30 at 8 pm until 9 am Saturday, Dec 1. The outage is as a result of a required PEPCO “Switchgear” Maintenance procedure. (Note: An earlier scheduled procedure for mid-October was canceled by PEPCO on the day of the event.)
The ITAP recommends that end-users shutdown their Desktops at the COB on Friday (11/30) – particularly those with external storage.
All ESSIC managed servers, including the ESSIC mail/web-server, will be shutdown at 6 pm on Friday. All servers are expected to be restored by noon of Saturday 12/1.
