SRCF Reboot: Planned 3-Day Electrical Outage

September 1, 2018 (All day) to September 3, 2018 (All day)
Stanford Research Computing Facility

The power outage will take place from very early morning on Saturday, September 1, 2018, through early evening on Monday, September 3, 2018.  During this time, the SRCF building power and generator backup will be OFF to enable safe access to the infrastructure. This building reboot will allow the every 5 year maintenance to be safely accomplished.


As a result of the power outage, systems in the SRCF (e.g. Sherlock, Farmshare, SCG, etc.) will not be available for the three day period and users will not be able to login or run jobs on these systems.

More detailed info will be coming as the date gets closer.  Please add the dates to your work group's calendar and begin thinking about what you'll need to do to prepare.

If you’d like to add anyone to the group of people who will be receiving information about the shutdown, please email that information to Nan McKenna at; please also include that person’s role (whether hands-on or management/policy).
