Un-planned downtime - upgrade server fs2k02 Tuesday Aug 13 9am - ETA 3 hours, scheduled 2 months ago
UPDATE: Apologies, but the upgrade is taking longer than normal. New ETA 12:45 to 1pm.
UPDATE: Upgrade still in process. ETA 12:30 PM
The server fs2k02 serves several lab shares which are being mounted by desktops and other machines. This server is still using the older SMB1 protocol for those shares and shares now inaccessible to many Windows users as this protocol is considered insecure and disabled by default. This problem will only grow as other users are updated so it needs to be addressed.
To resolve this we need to do an OS upgrade on this server. This will require a short downtime Tuesday morning. We will endeavor to keep this as short as possible, but due to the number of users now cut off from their shares, we feel it is critical we do this ASAP.
On Tuesday August 13th at 9am we will begin this upgrade. fs2k02 and the lab shares on it will be unavailable until this upgrade is complete. Please plan accordingly. We will need a window of about 3 hours to ensure this goes smoothly.
