Planned downtime 11/6/09

A period of planned downtime will affect Mimas services and projects from 10:00 on Thursday, 11 June 2009, including Copac. We hope this downtime will last no longer than 2 hours.

Mimas been working with Sun (our hardware supplier) to identify the cause of the fault that led to several Mimas services being unavailable during the weekend 16-17 May 2009. A potential fault was identified which requires replacement of a disk component by the Sun Engineer.

Therefore, a short period of downtime is necessary to remedy this fault. We would normally provide 2 weeks’ notice of maintenance, but we believe it is in everyone’s best interest to replace the faulty component at the earliest opportunity.

Apologiees for any inconvenience this may cause.
