MCS Linux: Remote login & SFTP server reboots, 17:30–19:00 Wednesday 10 October

Tue, 10/09/2018 - 15:31
Extent: MCS Linux remote-login services; DS-Filestore SFTP service. Impact: Each server will be rebooted. We will reboot each of these servers between 17:30 and 19:00 on Wednesday 10 October to apply routine software updates. Users connected to a rebooting machine will be given a few minutes notice to save their work, then disconnected while the server updates itself. We will stagger reboots so that at least one server will remain available for new connections throughout the maintenance period.
