I’ve got quite a lot of maintenance work to do Friday evening through early Saturday morning. This will involve rebooting the host machines to make active various updates and fixes as well as most of the guest machines. I don’t know if I’ll be able to complete everything in a four hour span so if not will pick up and continue Saturday evening.
I will be doing machines that are either duplicated or presently don’t have users on them first and then after midnight shellx, mail, and the web server as well as the host machines which will take everything down for about twenty minutes.
This work is necessary to image machines I’ve done a lot of work on so that work isn’t lost if it is necessary to restore from backups, load new kernels on some machines, and other updates such as dbus daemons and glibc on others, as well as to capture the Python3 install on backups.
