Scheduled Unavailability Notice:

To perform some necessary and pending maintenance and migration of the AERPAW Data and Compute Store (DCS) and Backplane over the upcoming long weekend, access from the public Internet to all parts of the AERPAW facility will be withdrawn starting noon on June 30th, and is expected to be restored sometime between then and July 5th 11:00am. During the maintenance window, the virtual environment servers are not expected to be shut down, and any machines, containers or processes running at any node at the beginning of the window should continue to run when the testbed is back online.  However, any remote session (such as remote login, ssh, OVP, etc) that are active at the beginning of the window will be disrupted, and as usual may leave something inconsistent as a result.  Please aim to have no such active remote connections by the beginning of the window.

When service is restored, we will inform the user community through emails and our website.  We appreciate the support of our user community.
