Potential network outage at Ullevål
On the night from Friday the 15th to Saturday the 16th the fiber cable connecting Ullevål to UiO might experience disturbances. This may cause the network connection out from our current location in Songsveien to drop either partially or completely.
The work on the fiber connection is scheduled to take place between 00:01 and 06:00. During this period, you will most likely not be able to log in to our machines at Ullevål or use the wireless in the building.
If you are running long term calculations on central servers, please ensure that the job you have issued does not require persistent network availability to function. The recommended solution is to use “tmux” or “screen” on the remote server.
The work is being done by Broadnet who supplies the fiber that is being serviced. UiO was informed 16:48 today about the potential outage. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the sysadmin staff.
