2021-02-10: Update: IP-based shortcuts will stop working. Switch to symbolic address now

Update: IP-based shortcuts will stop working. Switch to symbolic address now.

Date 2/1/2021 3:13pm
Urgent: Micfac TempStorage4 will have a new IP address

The IP-based shortcuts to TempStorage4 will stop working Feb 7, 2021.

For security reasons, TempStorage4 will have a new IP address. No data on TempStorage4 will be affected, just the address. We recommend that you create a new shortcut to the symbolic address before the change goes into effect on or after Sunday, February 7th.

To navigate to the new address:
Windows: Use File Explorer and enter “\\\TempStorage4” into the its address bar (omit the quotation marks).
Macs: Use Finder, and select Go>Connect to Server (or Cmd-K). Enter “smb://” (omit quotation marks) into the prompt window.
Emergency (Mon Feb 8): Moving TempStorage4 is scheduled for Sun 2/7-Mon 2/8. Although we don't expect problems, you can use its future IP address in an emergency the morning of Mon Feb 8. After the morning, switch back to symbolic address; any delays should be short-lived.

As a reminder, our server has limited capacity and is not a long-term repository. Files are retained on the server for 3 months after creation on the server. Operationally, the rolling window appears longer right now but we reserve the right to delete older files should the server become crowded. Please get in the habit of transferring your data to your own storage on a regular basis.
