PASS Upgrade – July 27

On Wednesday, July 27, ITS will perform a routine upgrade of the /pass/users filesystem in PASS. This will expand the size of the filesystem and upgrade it to the newer features of GPFS 4.1. In order to perform this upgrade, all services that rely upon it will become unavailable during the majority of the ITS maintenance window, 5-7am. These services include, but are not limited to the following:
– PASS Gateways (SMB/CIFS, NFS, Secure FTP)
– PASS Explorer, explorer.pass.psu.edu
– The personal web servers, www.personal.psu.edu and protected.personal.psu.edu
– php.scripts.psu.edu

This change is tracked in Service Now as CHG0037414.
