SCCS is down again. More to the point, campus is down again!
I spoke to the new ITS Unix admin, and he informed me that all of campus is without power. He’ll be giving me an update by phone once power is back up.
When I was waiting to be connected to him by the college operator, I overheard the operator speaking to someone in Ben West saying “Penn Electric said it would take at least a couple of hours…”, so don’t expect SCCS to back up anytime soon.
Once power is back up, SCCS will still not be back up, because of the aforementioned problem. A sys-admin will be sent from New Jersey as early as possible (the relevant ones are a bit busier this time) to massage Roc into restarting properly.
We can’t do a permanent fix to this problem (which appeared during our last attempted upgrade) because an archive-install-restore requires at least 24 hours of on-and-off monitoring by a physically present sys-admin. Since it is summer, and none of us are on-campus, this is difficult to schedule, and may not occur until Orientation Week.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
