Unscheduled HPSS outage

April 11, 2012  1:30pm – 2:40pm

Update - April 11, 2012 240pm

At around 240pm, ITaP engineers have restored communications between the HPSS system and the tape library. Access to Fortress from Samba, HSI/HTAR and other methods has been restored.

I apologize for the inconvenience this has caused. Please email us at rcac-help@purdue.edu if you continue to experience any problems with Fortress.

Thank you again for your patience.

At around 130pm, the HPSS archive system lost communications with the tape library. This is not related to the earlier Samba outage. While Samba has been returned to service, access to files on Fortress via Samba, HSI/HTAR, or any other methods will not be available. ITaP engineers are investigating and working to resolve this issue. There is currently no estimate for return to service - we will provide another update by 5pm this evening.

Thank you for your patience.
