We are currently experiencing a hardware issue that is causing filer.arch.tamu.edu (our main file storage service) to be inaccessible. This issue has caused all network fileshares hosted on filer.arch.tamu.edu to be unavailable (like the "O" drive, and some home directories). Also, many Windows workstations may see problems loading files onto the Desktop, with some Desktops appearing blank or reporting errors when attempting to save a file.
This issue has was first reported starting Thursday afternoon, and ITS is currently addressing the problem. We are in contact with the hardware vendor for a solution, and will continue to update this space as new information is available.
