Planned Maintenance to Banner 9 authentication server, DNS servers - Wed, Dec 20, 6:00–7:00 AM

Dec. 19, 2017

Schedule: Scheduled
Services Affected: DNS, Banner 9 authentication server
Type: Maintenance
When: 12/20/2017 6:00–7:00 AM

The production Banner 9 authentication server, as well as the two DNS servers, will be patched tomorrow morning (December 20) between 6am and 7am, to apply new kernel patches.

The Banner 9 authentication server will be down for about 5 minutes while an image is taken of the virtual machine. The system will then be booted, patched, and rebooted (to apply the patches), resulting in a second, shorter outage.

The DNS servers will be down for roughly 3 1/2 minutes as each is rebooted to apply patches.
