   Re: Scheduled Network Outage at LSU Saturday

   Attention LSU down stream IDD users,

   On August 12th at 6:00 AM CST, LSU will upgrade the core networking
   systems.  The estimated time for this work is twelve hours. During this
   time, we expect a loss of connectivity to all off campus sites.
  
   Please direct your IDD feeds to alternate IDD server resources.

   second and last phase of a campus wide project to upgrade high
   voltage equipment entering campus buildings.

   During the outage, there will be no communications to SSEC & no data
   will be ingested.

   In the event of a hurricane that is about to hit shore, the outage will 
   be rescheduled for Thursday,  August 24 (2006236) 0300 UTC - 1200 UTC.

   We apologize for any problem or inconvenience this outage may

IDD sites feeding from any of the above-mentioned servers should
switch to their failovers before the scheduled outages and then
back to their primaries after the outage.
