Due to a serious hardware problem CiCS and a consultant engineer need to perform major maintenance on our filers tomorrow morning, Thursday 31st January.
Work will begin at 6:30am and should be completed before the start of the working day without anyone noticing that anything has taken place.
However, as always with this type of work there is always a risk that a problem will be encountered and the work will take longer than expected. In this case the likelihood of the risk is low but the impact would be very high. Major services including Google MUSE and MOLE 2 would be unavailable.
In the event of a problem we will endeavour to restore services as soon as possible. Regular updates will be posted on the CiCS Service Status page and on our @cics Twitter feed.
