Summer Shutdown 2022 activities planning


  • lucix.luci spare checkout
    • goal: lucix.luci configured, tested, and available as hot spare if luci.luci dies.
    • Will require a swap of LUCI fibers from luci.luci to lucix.luci and back.
  • mysql DB cleanup (IT 8454)
    • Could be scheduled for May 14-21, but would much prefer SSD, as there will be less pressure to finish, and disk space will last until then.
  • Reconfigure LUCI private network
    • LUCI1 WebIO still has the lab address of (IT 8083)
    • Change LUCI WebIO password lockout timeout (IT 7900)
    • S.Hooper expressed interest in an overall reconfiguration of the LUCI private address space. It might be useful to have LUCI1, LUCI2, and Lab configured to have separate netmasks. Currently, they are at intervals of 10 (,,, which is not netmask-able.

  • mods2: the RAID 1 mirror array seems to break every time the machine is rebooted, so this time I am rebuilding it using drives sda and sdc, and leaving sdb as the spare. The sdb drive should be permanently replaced – sometime. A summer shutdown task, maybe?
  • mods1: I can’t see the “correct” mods1 machine on the eight port Raritan; the one I do see on the Raritan is labeled “down” and grayed out; I assume that is the unbootable mods1 that was mistakenly used as mods1 last week, and that needs to be returned to OSU for repair or replacement. I would like to make sure that the working mods1 is in good health, but I can’t until it is connected to the Raritan.
  • It would also be good to get the 16-port Raritan installed and configured in the rack eventually, so that all of the MODS computers are visible. Another summer shutdown task, maybe.


  • Synology
    • Firmware update mountain/Tucson
    • Need LeRoy on standby for mountain in case we get a reprise of the split-brain
    • PSU swap from Tucson to Mountain
    • Complete depopulation of old Tucson Synology, move pieces to the mountain.
  • Core switch upgrade
  • Mountain DNS change and upgrade
  • Obs station reconfiguration and replacement
  • dms mountain/tucson swap - physical at mountain, vm at tucson - best timing in Aug
