Important core facility server maintenance at the end of the year from 23.12.2018 – 01.01.2019

In order to simplify your core-data access in the future we will perform server maintenance at the end of the year from 23.12.2018 – 01.01.2019. All your core-data will be moved to a new server location called files.core.uzh.ch.

This means that you will have one access path containing all your different folders for all core facilities (ZMB, FCF, ZIRP & PCC) in one location. Your home and the transfer folder stay available under files.core.uzh.ch and are shared between all core facilities in order to facilitate data exchange between the different cores.

However, a zmbfiles & fcffiles folder with all your core-data will appear in your data folder after the migration. Your data will be accessible again from 2nd of January 2019 here:

\\files.core.uzh.ch\customer\transfer -> folder for sharing data within the core facilities (up to 250TB depending on shared use | auto-deletion after 7 days (no warning mail))

\\files.core.uzh.ch\customer\data -> personal folder for storing your data acquired at facility infrastructure (up to 250TB depending on shared usage | auto-deletion after 90 days (with warning mail))

\\files.core.uzh.ch\customer\home -> personal folder for storing application settings, protocols, lab-notes (1GB per user | no auto-deletion as long as you work at a core facility)

There might be applications where you need to change the path to the new fileserver, if you need help with this, please do not hesitate to contact us.


Please note, zmbfiles & fcffiles drive will not be available between Christmas and New Year (23.12.2018 – 01.01.2019)!

If you are using core facility infrastructure or virtual machines during the maintenance period, you will have a temporary drive called tempfiles, on which you can store your data. This folder will automatically be transferred to your data folder on the files.core.uzh.ch on the 02.01.2019.
If you need data already on the zmbfiles & fcffiles drive during the maintenance period, please copy the needed files to tempfiles between 11.12.2018 and 23.12.2018.

You can reach the tempfiles drive during the maintenance period as our other fileservers (https://www.zmb.uzh.ch/en/Howtos/How-to-access-your-data.html):
Windows: \\home.core.uzh.ch\tempfiles
Mac: smb://home.core.uzh.ch/tempfiles

The website howtos for saving and accessing our fileservers will be updated during the maintenance.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us directly!
