    Weekly Routine Maintenance Schedule (Sat-Sun 12am-8am)
    We perform routine systems maintenance on computer workstations as well as devices in the data center every week. Routine maintenance operations take place on Saturdays and Sundays between 12:00am and 8:00am. During those hours, you will want to save your work often and make archival copies of any files you may have open at that time. Maintenance operations during those hours can affect office and laboratory workstations (including workstation restarts with warnings), network storage systems (home spaces, web shares), web site servers, administrative systems, and email systems. Laboratory and office workstations perform software updates nightly and laboratory workstations restart every morning after showing a warning.
