next Tuesday, 2018-11-27 @ 17:30UTC we will reboot the
labnet1001.eqiad.wmnet server for maintenance and security updates.
This server provides virtual networking services for CloudVPS in the
main deployment (the old one, different from the eqiad1 deployment).
We won't be doing any failover prior to the reboot for operative reasons
(we measured the failover downtime is longer than the actual reboot time).
The impact of this brief reboot downtime will be:
* all VMs in the main CloudVPS deployment won't have network connectivity
* ongoing network connections (downloads, uploads) will fail and will
have to be restarted
* cross connectivity between VM instances in the main and eqiad1
deployment won't be possible
Thanks for your understanding, and let us know any issues you may find
after the reboot next week.
