Returning students' filestore

This week we will be doing some work on the student filestore servers for returning students.  The work will affect files and folders returning students use on computers around campus.

Over the summer we have purchased and set up some new, more powerful hardware to run our virtual server environment and we have been moving other services such as printing and MyPC, from the old equipment to the new. So far we have seen performance increases from the new hardware and are confident that you will see improvements in filestore. 

The moves will take place over three days, with two servers being moved per day. The work will take place at 7am and each student server will be unavailable for 15-30 minutes whilst it is moved. 

Here is the schedule:

Wed 25th - Redmires and Foxton - this will affect students with '09' or '12' in their username.
Thurs 26th - Roydmoor and Broadstone - students with '08' or '11' in their username.
Friday 27th - Ramsden and Barbrook - students with '10' in their username.
