Upgrade is failing to get packages from the repository and so I am going to re-install OpenSuse. It will be down until some time tomorrow evening.
Ran out of disk during an attempted update of OpenSuse from 15.0 to 15.1. Had to halt machine in order to resize the disk image and partitions to accommodate the update requirements.
All the planned reboots have been completed and NIS/NFS connectivity verified, but Centos7, Scientific7, and MxLinux were all a little slow out the gate with kernel updates so I have to reboot those today.
Sometime after tonight I’ll be rebooting the majority of servers to install kernel upgrades that address some newly discovered security concerns in Intel processors. Not all services will be down at once except for a brief period when we reboot the server with the /home user partition. That should take about fifteen minutes. This will happen sometime after midnight, probably closer to 2AM.
X2Go may fail saying pulseaudio not running on either Windows 7 or Windows 10.
Reboots are complete, no further interruptions anticipated tonight.
We will be rebooting most of our servers (all the Intel based machines) to load a new kernel to address recently discovered security vulnerabilities.
