  1. Power to the main server room will be removed by throwing the breakers in the distribution board. The three for the core switches have been labelled; it'll be interesting to see whether they're correct or not. Restore power after marriner is back up.

  2. Power to the self-managed server room will be removed by throwing the main switch in the distribution board. Restore power after everything else.

  3. Power cables in the comms racks to be labelled to make the necessary disconnections/reconnections easier.
    Done - idurkacz

  4. Trailing TP cables to be set up from core0 for CO's laptops.
    In hand: the eight core0 ports C13, C14, ..., C20 have been set to DHCP; cables need to be attached - idurkacz

  5. The unused Sanbox 5600-2 is to be liberated from Rack 4.

  6. Techs' help to be arranged for powering off the closets.
    In hand

  7. Turn off Nagios alerts for the entire period by:
    1. Just before the power-off, hand-editting the file curlew:/usr/bin/notify-by-jnotify and replacing the line
        my $message = join("\n",<STDIN>);
        my $message = join("\n",<STDIN>);
    2. On curlew, om nagios_server stop; om nagios_server start

    Revert all this after the power-off is over.
