Ubuntu Reboot and Backup

     I will be taking Ubuntu down later this evening for about 45 minutes to change the Ethernet emulation in the virtual machine because the Intel it is currently set to has driver bugs.  These don’t materially affect service but generate a lot of annoying messages in the logs.  I am also going to image the machine at the same time which is why 45 minutes instead of 5 minutes.  All other shell servers except OpenSuse, which is broken, will be available during this time, around 2AM.

     This is cancelled, the drivers for both the Intel E1000 and the Virtio Ethernet are equally broken in the same manner so no good to change them.
