Windows Firefox Uninstallation: Tuesday, 13-Jul-2021
As previously announced, Vivaldi
has now replaced Firefox
as the primary web browser on CLASSE computers. Therefore, on Tuesday, 13-Jul-2021, we will remove the CLASSE version of Firefox from CLASSE-managed Windows computers. However, if you need to continue using Firefox, you may install a user-managed version by following these instructions
. CLASSE Linux and Mac computers will not be affected at this time. Please submit a ServiceRequest
with any questions or concerns. In particular, please notify us of any job-related websites that still require Firefox, so that we can attempt to reproduce your problem and work towards a solution.
CESR MPM/XBUS Outage: Tuesday, 13-Jul-2021, 9:00AM - Noon
There will be maintenance on the W-221 UPS from 9:00AM to Noon on Tue 13-Jul-2021. This will take down the CESR MPM and XBUS systems, but it should NOT affect the CESR cluster itself.
General network and server maintenance will occur every Tuesday from 12 noon to 2:00 PM.
The CLASSE-IT group will always announce any expected disruptions in our NewsLetter
and via CLASSE-IT-NEWS-L
, but with the size and complexity of our network there is always the potential for something to go wrong. We will do our best to contain all network maintenance and planned outages to Tuesdays from 12 noon to 2:00 PM.
Unless other arrangements have been made, CLASSE-managed Windows systems may be updated and rebooted on Tuesday morning at 2:00 AM
, so please avoid critical or lengthy operations at that time. For more details, please see SystemExpectations
