Our monitoring systems have detected problems with a PDU (Power Distribution Unit) that supplies critical load to server16. Although load is currently being sustained, the intelligent management of this unit is impaired and it is likely that in the near future this may become service affecting.
Due to this, we are scheduling maintenance to replace this unit. During this maintenance it will be necessary to power down the server for the duration of the replacement process.

Our apologies for the inconvenience caused by this work, however please be assured it is necessary to complete.
Due to this working involving the powering down of hardware, please take time to ensure you have complete backups of your data stored in an off-server location.
