In preparation for the new academic year, on Tuesday, September 1st, from around 10 pm until after midnight, the systems group will be performing numerous updates involving our primary servers. This will include a hardware upgrade of our primary home directory fileserver, and patches and reboots of various servers, including access.cims.nyu.edu, imap.cims.nyu.edu and the departmental web servers.

Due to the hardware upgrade, home directories will be anavailable for at least an hour, and mail delivery will be delayed while the server is down.

In addition to this work, NYU-ITS will perform routine maintenance on  the nework switches that serve CIMS, both in WWH and 715/19 Broadway, which will cause network disruptions that could last up to several minutes as equipment is rebooted.
