External Network Maintenance Affecting Access to Hermes/Nestor and West Cloud on August 27, 9-am-5pm PT

On Saturday August 27, BC NET/CANARIE will be performing network maintenance between 9am-5pm PT. During this period there will be several hours with no external access to Hermes/Nestor and the West Cloud. Details on the schedule have not been released yet, so we will update this notice once the information is available. 

During this period Hermes/Nestor jobs will continue to run, if they rely on external resources (storage, etc) they will have issues during this period. For the West Cloud your instances (VM's) will continue to run, but you will not be able to access them. Access to the OpenStack Dashboard and API will also be affected. Access to the cloud will be available from the UVic campus if required.
