LDAP/Kerberos upgrade Sunday 2/19

As part of our ongoing work to transition from jessie to stretch at the OCF, we will be migrating our LDAP/Kerberos server today starting around 7:20 PM.

To do this, we'll import LDAP and Kerberos data from our on-site backups to test that they still work. Although they have been tested before, it's always nice to make sure that backups actually work and include the right data. After importing these backups, a final dump and sync will be made in case any data has changed in the small amount of time that it takes to import the backup data.

All users will be unable to log in while the migration is taking place, but this should only be a very short time, as the majority of the migration will be done before the final sync is done.

Contact us if you have any questions or concerns about the upgrade!

Update 7:40: All users should be able to log in again, please let us know if you have any issues with accessing your account!
