North Haugh & Sports Centre – Power Outage – 9am 30th July

Please be aware that power will be off from 9am on the 30 July 2015 to all buildings on the North Haugh (bar the Technology Centre and Gateway which will be unaffected). This will be off for a maximum of 15 minutes to allow Scottish Power to carry out essential safety checks to their equipment.

You are advised to shut down equipment completely at the mains prior to the power outage (9am 30th July). This is both to prevent damage to your equipment being caused by possible surges as power is restored AND the load presented by your kit CAUSING the surges.
It is NOT sufficient to just shut down the likes of computers and many other electronics, these maintain power to the equipment even when shut down and must be powered off at the mains.

Also, be aware that some systems (Networking, Servers and Storage) may need time to be brought back online after this power off.
