TSM Maintenance (backup.aset.psu.edu)
On Wednesday, August 15, 2012, Information Technology Services (ITS) will upgrade software for the distributed file backup service, Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM), backup.aset.psu.edu. Maintenance is scheduled to begin at 10:00 a.m. and will conclude by 12:00 p.m. During this time, backup.aset.psu.edu will not be available for backing up or restoring files. The other TSM servers, saverestore.its.psu.edu and tsm.offsite.psu.edu, will not be affected during this maintenance.
Maintenance is scheduled to occur outside the regularly scheduled maintenance window because file backup logs indicate the lowest amount of TSM usage occurs between 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m., so the software upgrade will cause the least amount of disruption to the user community at that time.
This software upgrade is scheduled to occur one day after ITS completes another software upgrade to one of the TSM servers, saverestore.its.psu.edu. For more information about the saverestore.its.psu.edu software upgrade, please reference ITS Alert #2422.
