One of our two Internet service providers FirstLight has fiber maintenance scheduled this coming Tuesday morning, Aug 12th. This is related to the railway modification plans in downtown Middlebury. Our Internet service should have little to no impact as we have redundant capacity between two providers.
The fiber circuit connecting the Bread Loaf campus to Middlebury campus will be down for up to 90 minutes sometime within the 12:01am to 5:00am maintenance window Tuesday morning. Bread Loaf will have no network connectivity during that time. FirstLight has scheduled the following two mornings as alternates in case of weather related delays.
Start Date: 08/12/2014-08/14/2014
Start Time: 0001 EDT
Estimated End Date: 08/12/2014-08/14/2014
Estimated End Time: 0500 EDT
Service Impact: Loss of service for up to 90 minutes.

During our regular Sunday morning system maintenance today the swap between primary and backup NAS clusters was successful. The filesystems for Middfiles, Crux, and Augusta are all available for use. One side-effect of the cluster swap is some computers may need to be rebooted to see Middfiles or the home directory.
If you cannot see your home directory or Middfiles, or get prompted for a username and password when trying to, please reboot your computer. That should resolve the issue and force the computer to successfully recognize that the primary and backup clusters have swapped roles.
We appreciate your patience as we strive to keep our systems functioning optimally.
