Computer Science Status
Date: Monday, June 11, 2018 (14:00-15:00)
Who is affected:
Users of the CS Department CIFS/SMB file server service.
What is happening:
One node of our file server cluster will be rebooted, so some CIFS/SMB file
shares may be unavailable during the reboot. Most clients should be
If you find your CIFS/SMB connection is hung or disconnected, wait a few
minutes and then attempt to reconnect.
Why is it happening:
A firmware bug in the file server has caused a destabilizing failure in one
of the nodes. As a result, that node needs to be rebooted. During the
reboot, some CIFS/SMB service will be disrupted, but all other functions of
the file server should failover to other nodes and continue uninterrupted.
