PASS Homes Metadata Disk Replacement

Last updated on January 12, 2018 at 3:17PM

Metatdata disks used by the PASS homes file systems will be replaced over several days between Jan 15 and Jan 21. The work should be transparent to PASS users except that users may see an increase in file system latency between 10pm and 5am Jan 17-19 and the following weekend Jan 20-21 as new disks are added to the filesystems and old disks are removed. This change is being tracked in Service Now as CHG0045420.
