Online Campus Directory Search Tool Upgrade on September 18, 2019 from 10 to 11am

Purpose: Upgrade

Services Affected:

The Directory Search Tool will be replaced with a new version, developed by the ICS department. This new version adopts the current look of our directory, while utilizing features added by ICS's implementation of their search engine.

- Changes include the removal of the "Advanced Search" section, since it is no longer needed - searches will span across all key fields.
- Supports "fuzzy" search - approximating results based on search criteria, instead of being strict
- Provides results based on common synonyms and nicknames, or those specific to UCI
- Results are displayed immediately as you type (assuming your browser allows it).

ICS will also direct their users to OIT's search tool, and eventually halt their service altogether.

There is no expected downtime.

Scheduled ATS and Generator Test on September 18, 2019, from 7 to 8am

Purpose: Scheduled maintenance

Services Affected:

On Wednesday 9/18/19, UCI Facilities Management electricians with Data Center support and oversight will be conducting our regular monthly emergency Generator / UPS / Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) preventive maintenance test. This notice is being posted as information only as this ongoing monthly preventive maintenance test is non-disruptive.

At approximately 7am the ATS will be tripped to transfer active power loads for the data center from utility power to UPS / Generator power automatically via the Automatic Transfer Switch.

When the maintenance test is complete around 7:45 to 8 AM, the ATS will be tripped once again to transfer data center power back from Generator to Utility power automatically via the Automatic Transfer Switch.

If you have any questions or concerns about this matter, please contact Alex Giesler at 949-824-9494 or Ken Cooper at 949-824-3704

OITDC UPS Devices Scheduled Maintenance on Saturday, September 7, 2019 from

Purpose: Scheduled maintenance

Services Affected:

On 9/7/19 from 7 AM til 1 PM we will be performing maintenance on one of our OITDC UPS devices; we need to replace the batteries to ensure consistent and reliable function in the future.

On 9/7, a technician will arrive at OITDC and put UPS-2 into maintenance bypass, which will not cause any interruptions in power. This will give all the affected racks power until the UPS is brought back online.
The technician will change out the batteries in the UPS and do some testing to ensure everything is set up correctly. Once he's confirmed the install, he will take the UPS out of bypass mode which will not cause any interruptions in power.

While this work is being done, the affected racks will have constant power but will not have UPS power protection from a power outage. That being said, we are expecting a mild weather day and our utility connection is reliable, so we do not anticipate a high chance of power outages.

Please contact Alex Giesler at agiesler@uci.edu / 949-824-9494 or Ken Cooper at cooperk2@uci.edu / 949-824-3704 if you have any questions.
