Borel will be taken down on Saturday, October 18th at 12:00 AM EDT (-0400 GMT) for a planned RAM upgrade. We will be doubling Borel’s RAM to 8 GB in anticipation of an exciting, new Tomcat change. We expect the outage to last approximately 10 minutes. Our standby power supply will also be tested at this time.

If you are running a service on the server, then please be sure to create the necessary init scripts in /etc/rc3.d. Commands found in this directory will be executed upon start-up.

12:23 AM: Borel is up and running after going down at approximately 12:10 AM.  Memory is at 8 GB:
