Dear FermiCloud users,
WHAT ARE WE DOING?
Computing is updating the kernels and other software on FermiCloud. These updates are to the FermiCloud infrastructure; we are not updating the guest virtual machines.
WHEN WILL THIS OCCUR?
Tuesday, Nov. 16; 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Central Time
WHAT IS THE IMPACT TO YOU?
Virtual machines on FermiCloud will be rebooted during this downtime; they will not be available during the outage.
Those virtual machines that are running when FermiCloud is shut down will be brought back up after the outage.
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DO?
You do not need to take any action. This message is for your information only.
However, as users themselves are responsible for updating their virtual machines running on FermiCloud to comply with the Fermilab Policy on Computing, this may be a good time to check if any updates are required.
