The Barracuda firmware updates were applied to both servers (one at a time) allowing mail to continue being filtered. The system load on remaining online server was not sufficient to cause any noticeable problems for our users. These servers are now running the latest stable release.
UISMEDIA1 will be upgraded to the latest supported operating system on Monday starting at 9AM. This timeframe is being used since there are only a few users on this system, most of whom are within ITS.
Users have begun noticing that they are unable to obtain an IP address after authenticating on UISWiFi. Kevin noticed that the scopes are full and is trying to resolve the issue.
Andre Krabbe, Manager of the Software WebStore, has just confirmed that the Software WebStore (http://webstore.illinois.edu) is currently unavailable and that Campus Information Technologies and Educational Services (CITES) is working on the issue.
The server UISVCSQL1 was rebooted this morning around 10:30AM after noticing that Systems Support was no longer able to manage any of the VM’s through the vSphere Client. Once the server was restarted, we began the process of verifying that all the services have been restored.
The week of May 19, 2013, the VMware ESXi hosts in both the Test/Dev as well as the production environment will be upgraded from 5.0.0 to 5.1.0. The only notable performance issue that anyone should encounter will be if a user is remoted into one of the VM’s while it is being migrated from one host to another.
The VMware production hosts will have new memory added on Friday, March 15, 2013. The active VM’s will be migrated off the host that is is being worked on using vMotion. Once the host is brought back online, the VM’s will be migrated in a round-robin fashion while each of the other hosts are being upgraded. There should be little if any impact on the active VM’s during this process.
Tomorrow March 14, 2013, the virtual servers that are in the 103VLAN will be migrated to the new 2012VLAN which is where future Edtech-based servers will be placed. The servers that will be down during this configuration change are:
This will be done during the maintenance window and should have little impact to the services running on these servers.
