Rebelfiles Y: Drives unavailable in the morning of Tuesday, Sept. 19

Filed under:

Home directories, also known as the "Y:" Drive, will be unavailable from 12:01 a.m. through 4 a.m. on Tuesday, September 19 as OIT moves these directories to a new server.

To avoid losing any unsaved changes, save all files and disconnect from Rebelfiles before midnight on Friday, September 18 and avoid saving making any changes during the maintenance window.

During the outage window, you should be able to open and read files if necessary, but any changes to files, folders, etc. made during this time will not be saved.

Additionally, Mac users will need to change their drive mappings to reflect the new server name. For example, any mapping to //oit-fs-01.ad.unlv.edu/Users/username should be changed to //IT-MSWFS-FSP-01.ad.unlv.edu/Users/username, where username is the user's ACE account name. Contact the IT Help Desk or your departmental technician to get assistance with this if needed.
