Urgent Notice: IRLP Yearly Major Maintenance Outage,
June 16 4:00 PM - June 19, 2017 4:00 PM EDT


The IRLP maintenance outage is scheduled from Friday, June 16 at 4:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time through Monday, June 19th at 4:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time.

The IBM Poughkeepsie Facilities team requires a weekend outage to building 003, where our IRLP lab is located, in order to perform significant building electrical service maintenance.

The IRLP outage is scheduled from Friday, June 16 at 4:00 PM EDT through Monday, June 19th at 4:00 PM EDT. Time is needed on Friday evening to safely shut down all systems, and on Monday to bring everything back up. While we anticipate most systems will be running by noon on Monday, this activity may continue into Monday afternoon. The IRLP Booking Portal will be down during this time.

IRLP VM classes can be booked to start during the outage. The regular class details email will be sent to bookers, instructors and contacts approximately 72 hours before the class start time. A second email will be sent approximately 24 hours before the class starts with a temporary 'shared portal' link for the students and instructors. This link should be used until the regular class links start working Monday. The email will have further information on using these links.

Classes that require access to physical hardware will not be allowed to book with a start time before before Monday 4:00 EDT.

The IRLP Reservation portal has been set to block any lab bookings during this time. In some cases, you may wish to begin a class on Monday with lecture only, and to begin the lab work on Tuesday.

Self Pace Virtual Courses (SPVC) - Students will not be able to access their labs during this time.

We apologize for the inconvenience this will cause.


Best Regards,
The IRLP support team
