Maintenance Window 17th December 2016

Our central storage servers (Tier1: SSD based and Tier2: HD bases) need to updated, as the current storage software has reached its end-of-life (EOF) and therefore does not receive any updates or bug fixes.

This means, to major bugs ([1] and [2]) are not getting fixes. As this update consists of a version jump, this update needs to be done off-line.

The following services will be interrupted between Saturday evening, the 17th of December 2016 from 22:00 (UTC+1/CET) until Sunday morning, the 18th of December 2016 at 06:00 (UTC+1/CET):

  • stoney cloud: All four-digit KVM-based virtual machines: kvm-0001 until kvm-9999.
  • stoney storage: All instances.
  • stoney backup: All backups accounts, with account IDs starting with the number 4.
  • stoney web: All project wikis, installed in the last eight weeks

You'll receive the next communication from our side as follow:

  • Saturday, the 17th December 2016 (Start of the maintenance window)
  • Sunday, the 18. December 2016 (End of the maintenance window)

Notice: We will be executing the software update in two steps (to minimize risk of data loss). The second step will be done on the the weekend of the 18th and 19th of February 2017. We will inform you about this maintenance window in the beginning of January 2017.
