Planned maintenance — July 3rd-5th

This com­ing 3-day week­end I will be per­form­ing some oper­a­tions involv­ing the School’s main file server and the 4 remain­ing “groups” shares still on the CFR domain.

On Fri­day July 3rd around 7am the file server main.sefs.uw.edu will be unavail­able for a short period of time while I migrate it over to the updated host clus­ter. This process is sim­i­lar to a long reboot and should have no other impact.

Then I will begin migrat­ing our last 4 “groups” shares from the old CFR sys­tem to main.sefs.uw.edu. Users directly impacted by this have been con­tacted via email with the specifics.

Please remem­ber to save and close out of any files either within \\main.sefs.uw.edu or \\cfr.washington.edu\main\groups before leav­ing for the long weekend.

Thanks and have a fun and safe 4th of July!

CFR “Groups” share restored

Users should once again be able to access the share. If you con­tinue to encounter any issues, try clos­ing the Win­dows Explorer win­dow and reopen­ing it from “my com­puter” or any short­cut you were pre­vi­ously using. If issues per­sist please con­tact the helpdesk.
