“SDSC” Wireless retirement – 29 March 2017

As stated in a previous email, a recent security audit of SDSC, sponsored by UCOP, identified several findings associated with the SDSC Wireless system (SDSC SSID). In order to remediate the findings related to the SDSC Wireless System, SDSC will retire its SDSC specific wireless SSID on March 29th.

One issue brought forward is access to SDSC printers. The SDSC Help Desk is working with Staff who have identified this as an issue. Another issue identified was access to the private addresses from the SDSC Wireless SSID. An alternative access method is being implemented for those Staff with this requirement.

If there are any other issues related to the retirement of the SDSC Wireless SSID, which have not been brought forward to be addressed, the SDSC Help Desk.

If you currently make use of the SDSC wireless SSID, we ask that you switch over to the UCSD-PROTECTED wireless SSID prior to the March 29th deadline.

SDSC Planned Maintenance – East Data Center emergency power – 25 Feb, 2017, 0600

All power has been restored and is stable.  No further power interruptions are expected.  I will send another notice when loads are protected and all operations have returned to normal.

–Jeff

 

 

We have energized two of the three PDU units, but the third has come back with a major alarm.  Troubleshooting will continue.  If your power is on at this time, the maintenance window has completed regarding power interruption, and you should see no further interruptions.

UPS commissioning has commenced and we expect loads to be Emergency-protected power between 2000 and 2100 this evening.

–Jeff

 

 

We are currently targeting 1630 for power on.  We need that additional 30 minutes for testing.  Thank you for your patience.

–Jeff

 

We are currently within the maintenance window of 0600 – 1600 for today’s power maintenance. Updates will come as they are available.
