Downtime on October 6

The OCF will be experiencing downtime, due to scheduled maintenance, on October 6th, from 9PM-12AM. Hosted websites will experience downtime as we briefly reboot the servers to apply critical security updates.  Once our servers are rebooted, users accessing our public login server and our apphosting server will not be able to write files as we are moving NFS to a new host. This read-only period will last no longer than 15 minutes and all operations should behave as normal by midnight at the latest.

Thanks for flying with the OCF!

8:53 Update: We've powered off the servers to do networking hardware and kernel updates.
11:03 Update: We've decided not to do the NFS migration tonight, but networking updates have been performed and services should be back up in the next hour.
11:42 Update: Most of our public servers should be back now, apart from our public mirrors and our own website (vhosts should be fine).
12:17 Update: Our website is back, but our software mirrors are not back yet.
12:51 Update: Everything should be back and working now except our HPC control server, which we are still debugging.
1:35 Update: This is the all clear, everything should be working now! Feel free to let us know by emailing if you notice anything wrong.
