Power outage for Zimbra Email Service

Date:                   March 4, 2015
Start Time:             4:30 am
Duration:               2 hours 30 minutes
Building(s) Affected:   The Zimbra email service will be unavailable on 
                        March 4, 2015 starting at 4:30am until 7:00am. 
                        Facilities will be working on the power supply to
                        the room housing some of the Zimbra servers. 
                        
                        All aspects of the Zimbra email service will be 
                        affected by this power outage including mail 
                        access, mail delivery, and account management. 
                        Mail sent to our Zimbra users during this outage 
                        will queue and will be delivered when the service
                        is restored. 
                        
                        We don't anticipate that the electrical work 
                        will take this entire window but are reserving 
                        this outage in case of problems.

Maintenance on the emergency power feed

Date:                   March 4, 2015
Start Time:             4:00 am
Duration:               3 hours 30 minutes
Building(s) Affected:   On Wednesday, March 4, 2015 between 4:00 AM and 
                        7:30 AM, electricians from Penn's Division of
                        Facilities and Real Estate Services will be 
                        conducting maintenance on the emergency power 
                        feed to the Mod V Network Aggregation Point 
                        (NAP). 
                        As a result, many network services may be 
                        operating in a degraded state, which means that 
                        they are operating in a state of decreased 
                        redundancy until power is restored. 
                        
                        There is potential for service loss to some 
                        services, single-linked buildings and wireless 
                        networks that are fed from our equipment in the 
                        Mod V NAP during this time.

Outage announcement for DNS service

Date:                   March 10, 2015
Start Time:             6:00 am
Duration:               1 hour 
Building(s) Affected:   On Tue 3/10, between 6 and 7 AM, ISC will be 
                        applying necessary security patches to the DNS 
                        servers (NOC3, NOC2, and NOC1). 
                        For a period of minutes within this maintenance 
                        window, users may experience a connection delay 
                        as queries to the affected DNS server timeout and
                        are resubmitted to an available server. 
                        No impact is expected for NTP clients. The entire
                        window is reserved for testing. 
                        
Service(s) Affected:    DNS and NTP (Network Time Protocol)
