Maintenance Operation by the GWDG

Our hosting partner – the GWDG in Göttingen – informed us that they plan to perform complex works at their local power supply on Wednesday, November 17th.

For this reason, all PubMan services, especially the productive and the migration server will not be available from 6:00 A.M. until presumably 9:00 A.M. (CET)  on next Wednesday.

We are sorry for any inconveniences caused by this maintenance operation!

6.1 release by next week!

After months of intense preparations and testing, we are getting ready to finally complete the development of the long delayed and eagerly awaited PubMan release 6.1.

The planned deployment of the new version within the live system is expected to take two and a half days, starting on Tuesday, September 14 in the evening.

In order to prevent our users from not being able to access their data for more than two long days, we plan to set up a ‘read only’ system during that time. ‘Read only’ means, you will be able to access as well as search or browse within your items, but it will not be possible to enter new data until the deployment of the new version is finished.

Maintenance operation by the GWDG

The GWDG informed us that they plan to perform the physical relocation of an important server board on Thursday, September 2. Because several server of the MPDL are located here, this operation will affect most of them.

For this reason, all PubMan services, especially the productive and the migration server will not be available for the entire day.

We are sorry for any inconveniences caused by this maintenance operation!

Migration-PubMan update

With regard to future migrations, we need to perform a major update of the PubMan version currently deployed on the migration server. The operation will include an update of the underlying core service as well.
For this reason, we have to shut down the migration server for an undetermined period of time starting Wednesday, August 4.
Unfortunately, working on imported test data and all testing activities have to be delayed until the server becomes available again.

We will inform you as soon as the new PubMan version is deployed.

Short reworking on Wednesday, August 4

Our hosting partner for PubMan – the GWDG in Göttingen – informed us that they have to perform some smaller reworking measures in connection with last week’s storage extension.
The necessary reload of the system will take place on Wednesday, August 4 at 9:00 am. During the restarting operations, PubMan again will not be available for a short period.
The whole procedure is expected to take about 10 Minutes – in case of technical difficulties it could last up to one hour.

Downtime on Thursday, July 29

We are planning to prepare our system for future developments and a growing number of users. To that purpose we will perform a storage extention for our live server on the upcoming Thursday, July 29. During the necessary operations, the live server will unfortunately not be available. The deployment of the new data storage is expected to take place between 8:30 and 11:00 am.

New core services – changes on demo instance

The long-awaited magic switch is coming;-)…

We are currently moving all PubMan instances within MPG domain to a new version of eSciDoc core services (Framework 1.2.) The procedure will take several week…and we start with our test/demo instance of PubMan on http://test-pubman.mpdl.mpg.de:8080/pubman/

Please be aware that your test data and test user accounts (incl. contexts, organisational units) will be wiped out due to the new Framework!
If you want to re-activate your test accounts and settings, please write an informal mail to pubman-support@gwdg.de
