**Update** – Shutdown of Life Sciences Data Centre July 4, 2013 11:00 AM PT

We are working to manage the cooling problems that occured earlier this morning at the Life Sciences Data Centre. At this time, the issue has been reduced but a shutdown may still occur depending on whether the situation stabilizes.

At this point all production servers are up and all major services are not affected with the exception of Blackboard Connect. We anticipate Connect will be online by 12:00 PM.

If a shutdown occurs, it will affect many major IT services across campus including Exchange, Blackboard and Connect, Home Storage Drive, and Educloud.
