A major update of the SCS Reaction System is scheduled for November 4th beginning at 9:00 PM. This will require closing the Chemical Storeroom Nov 4th at 9:00 PM until Monday Nov 7th. Dry ice will be in the hallway outside of 94RAL along with issue cards. Please fill out in legible writing. The Storeroom will reopen as soon as possible on Monday. Special orders will be available before 9pm Friday and when the Storeroom opens on Monday.

All Reaction services will be unavailable including Procurement, Shops, Gases, and Physical Plant.

We expect most of the update to be finished by 6:00 PM Saturday November 5th but there may be intermittent outages Saturday night and Sunday.

Reaction has been running very solidly for over 6 years on the same equipment. It is time to update the underlying hardware and software to make sure it continues to be stable. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

We will post the status of the update on the http://computing.scs.illinois.edu/ website.

If you experience any issues after the update is complete, please send an email to computing [at] scs [dot] illinois [dot] edu.
