SOM/OIS Central File Server Update

OIS will upgrade the file server supporting several business units within the School of Medicine beginning at 8 p.m. April 15. The upgrade activity should be non-disruptive and have little to no impact to file access. The work should be completed by 10 p.m. April 15th.

OIS will be applying version 8.2.3p2 of the Data ONTAP software to the NetApp cluster named “robbins."  OIS has tested the upgrade and is following vendor recommendations for installation.  We anticipate a brief (2-3 second) outage to file services during the upgrade. The work will be done outside of normal business hours to minimize the impact on business operations.

Please inform OIS if this work has a significant negative impact on our business operations.  If you have any questions please contact Ken Langley, at
