Machine Room Outage – Wehner Solution

December 17th, 2008 by Erick Beck

As many of you know, there will be a scheduled outage of the Teague machine room in early January (exact date still to be determined.)  This outage will mean that any services housed in Teague will be offline for up to a day.

We will have a temporary solution for keeping www.tamu.edu alive by housing a server in Wehner.  Because so many services across campus will be offline, though, we do not plan to operate the full, standard web site. We will instead house a general information page saying that much of the campus infrastructure is unavailable due to maintenance.  This will at least keep an open dialog to the outside world rather than having the university simply go dark.

If any of you run a vital service that is not housed in the machine room and will be online, please send us an email (webmaster@tamu.edu) and if possible we will include links to your site on the main university site.  Also keep a watch on enhancement.tamu.edu as information on the outage will be posted there as it becomes known.
