HPCVL Power Outage (October 16th)


Due to a scheduled power outage at HCPVL, all services hosted there will be offline for a period of time on Wednesday, October 16. The services affected are non-production systems and offsite backups. Production systems should not be affected by this outage.

To ensure system integrity, ITServices will proactively shut down all systems before the outage and bring them back online afterwards. We will attempt to limit the outage on key systems, but some services may be down from 10:30 a.m. until approximately 5:00 p.m.


List of affected non-production systems:


  • PeopleSoft development databases
  • PeopleSoft development application environments
  • LDAP3 development and preview instances
  • MySQL development and preview instances
  • Reverse proxy preview instances
  • Moodle development and preview instances
  • WebPublish (Drupal) preview instances
  • VMWare test instances (all applications running on these instances will also be down)
  • TRAQ - Millennium Fast and Romeo (test)
  • Backups: TSM and EMC Networker
  • MyQueensU preview instances

 Please note, we will be updating this webpage as more services affected by this change are identified.
