GS observing database not accessible due to network failure

, Updated

The Gemini South observing database is not accessible as of 9:00am on April 27, 2017 due to a network hardware failure at CTIO. Repair work is ongoing but there is currently no estimate of when this will be repaired. This will prevent program sync and auxiliary file transfers. This announcement will be updated as we learn more.

Update April 28: The network link has been restored but communication with the observing database may be unreliable.
