A major CS machine room (DC3558) is down — 2014-07-08

At about 11:00, the main CS machine room (DC3558) had to be shut down due to water infiltration from across the hall (DC3556). This will affect at least: linux.cs, smb-files.cs, mail.cs, print.cs, and backup.cs.

The room is a major networking hub for the building, so much networking was down for a while, however a workaround for networking power has been found. Cleanup is in progress.
A major CS research machine room (DC3556) is down — 2014-07-08

At about 8:55AM 2014-07-08 the fire alarm triggered in the DC. The A/C in the main CS research machine room (DC3556) is conjectured to have failed, and the room got hot enough to trigger the sprinkler system. Power is off to the room while water is being removed. There is also water in various areas on the floor below.

Assessment of equipment damage will follow once the water is cleared out and it's deemed safe to turn on the power.
