Firebox Virtual Server Maintenance

September 27, 2016  1:00pm – 5:00pm

This work was largely postponed due to other concerns. A few related systems were relocated successfully during this time.

Original Message:

The hardware powering all Firebox Virtual Servers will be unavailable beginning at Tuesday, September 27th, 2016 at 1:00pm, for scheduled maintenance. These will return to full production by Tuesday, September 27th, 2016 at 5:00pm.

During this time, the servers will be physically relocated within the data center.

This work will be done concurrent with the Home Filesystem Maintenance - All Clusters, but will be for a much shorter time frame within that work. While the Home Filesystem work is underway and the Firebox servers are not down for this maintenance, they will operate as best they can absent home directories. Many of these will be able to operate normally, although direct SSH access will be difficult until home diretcories are restored.
