MRMS customers,

A disruption of the test feed occurred over the weekend and two more short
disruptions are expected today and tomorrow.

The MRMS data feed to our test web site and College Park local test
directories was interrupted over the weekend, and restored yesterday
afternoon.  About 40 hours of data were missing due to an outage of the vm
that writes to the CPRK common mounts.

Today a single MRMS vm is scheduled to be patched as part of routine CPRK
QA tier patching.  Users may notice a short disruption of data to the web
site and mounted CPRK directories.

Tomorrow the entire MRMS test suite is scheduled to be patched where MRMS
is running in BLDR.  Expect short disruptions or data losses to most file
types.  Multi-hour files may take longer to come back.

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Thank you,


PS  We are still having problems with our LDM dissemination from the BLDR
ldmoutt vm.  Thank you to those of you who asked to test the LDM feed -- we
are still trying to work with our Network and systems team to make that
