Data Center Maintenance: PDU Shutdown


Impact of the change on users:

The power distribution units (PDU) for several rows in the Data Center will be shut down during the maintenance period; however, any systems that have redundant power supplies and are configured to switch to the redundant source automatically should not experience an interruption.


The ITS Facilities and Infrastructure Operations Team sent details of this maintenance via email to system administrators. If you are unsure about the configuration of your equipment, as a precautionary measure, ITS recommends planning for a power interruption and, if desired, schedule a controlled shutdown of your equipment. To schedule a controlled shutdown or if you have questions about this maintenance, please contact the Facilities and Infrastructure Operations Team at or 703-993-3383.

For each interruption/installation, a follow-up notice will be distributed once the installation is complete and power is returned to its normal state.

Reason for the change:

PDUs in several rows will be shut down so electricians can safely perform work in the Data Center. (ID # 220502)
