Some time after 6pm in the evening of July 12th, there will be an outage affecting the NFS servers for QRISdata Tier2 collections and file-shares. This outage is to perform an NFS service "fail over" from the primary server to the alternate server so that the vendor engineers can apply software upgrades. The fail-over procedure is likely to take a minute or so.
During the outage, any application that is reading or writing a file on a collection or HPC file-share on the affected NFS server will temporarily freeze. Once the outage is completed, the activity will resume automatically. If an attempt is made to mount or automount a collection or file share during the outage, the system is likely to experience a temporary mount failure.

UPDATE - the failover occurred as scheduled.
