Service Provision During the November 2010 Forum Powerdown

As the bulk of our servers and services are located in the Informatics Forum, during the building power-off most services will be down and unavailable for the duration of the power cut, plus a certain amount of time either side of the power off due to time required to shut things down and then restart them.

As a basic rule of thumb people should assume that no Informatics services will be working during the power off, the exceptions being:

www.inf.ed.ac.uk (though no publishing will be available)
homepages.inf.ed.ac.uk
wiki.inf.ed.ac.uk
Plone WCMS sites hosted on wcms.inf.ed.ac.uk

this is mainly due to those servers being located in Appleton Tower.

This means that the following will be unavailable: mail relays, networked file space eg home directories, and most web services.
