20150128: Planned work: Nebula domain controller 1/28/2015

A small service outage is planned for one of the Nebula2 domain controllers.


What and When:

On Wednesday, January 28th from noon to 12:30pm one of the two Nebula2 domain controllers will be unavailable.


What you need to do:

No impact is expected, the remaining Nebula2 domain controller will remain in service during this period and will handle the increased load for this short period.


More info:

Our supplier, the UW-IT Data Center Services, needs to physically relocate our server to accommodate their plans. No complications are expected in relocating this server, but it is possible that the outage may last longer than expected. If it does, we’ll send out an additional notification. In the past, we have also seen isolated cases where some Nebula file servers don’t react well to a domain controller’s absence. We don’t expect any problems, but we are aware of the potential, and will closely watch and take action if needed.


If you have questions about this planned work, please send email to with “Nebula domain controller” in the subject line.
