Disk storage issue affecting faculty/staff e-mail and network file storage (posted 08/18/2014 9:10 AM)

We are currently experiencing issues with a number of servers on campus, including our Exchange server (affecting faculty/staff e-mail). Although e-mail is currently working, the underlying problem persists, and e-mail interruptions may continue to occur until the problem is corrected. Dell is looking at the issue now which involves a disk storage array that serves Exchange information stores and some disk volumes on bscappm1, and possibly other servers such as bscappm2, bscappm3 and bscappm4. These other servers are used for departmental and personal network file storage. We will advise when more is known. Your patience is appreciated.
