[2022-01-10 – 21:00 to 23:59 PST ] VCEA IT Emergency Maintenance – EECS NetApp Storage Server
This maintenance is complete. There were no issues or complications.
If users are encountering problems with VCEA services, they should contact the VCEA Helpdesk online at support.vcea.wsu.edu, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone at (509)335-6773.
We will be performing emergency maintenance on the EECS NetApp tonight to correct some issues that arose after last week’s firewall and switch maintenance. The work being performed will likely be disruptive to file shares.
End users should save and close all open files from VCEA network shares prior to the start of the maintenance window. Failure to do so could result in a loss of data for open and/or unsaved files.
While this maintenance should be fairly straightforward and routine, due to the age of the NetApp, we have factored in additional time for the maintenance window to account for surprises.
See below for maintenance info.
