potential Rich Data Center power issues

This entry was posted by on Thursday, 2 December, 2010 at

Hi folks,

I wanted to make you aware of an ongoing issue in one of the Rich building Data Center rooms.  The short version is that room 116 is currently without UPS protection.  Nearly all of our PACE servers, storage and core network reside in this room.

We have yet to experience any problems at this point, and have increased the frequency of our backups as a precaution.  Below is a snippit from the daily 0800 notes as released by OIT operations.

Wed 0610-ongoing: One of the Rich machine room UPSes experiencing issues and went into bypass mode. Metropower contacted and determined the UPS needs to be replaced. Metropower working on replacing the unit, but the equipment on it is currently on street power and will be affected by any power glitches Rich may experience before the UPS is back in service. Admins should be prepared to bring any machines that go down back up in the event of a power glitch.
