Redhat Software Updates

We will be installing Redhat software updates to all production services except for BDII. This will require reboots in most cases; however, in those cases where we have redundancy via DNS round-robin, we will be making use of this to reduce or eliminate service interruption. Only the updates that have already been installed on the ITB hosts will be installed on the production hosts. The production BDII servers will not be updated in this release.

We will be rebooting is1.grid.iu.edu, which has been responding sluggishly since an attempt to install a software update, which was rolled back. This is one of the two BDII servers, and we will be utilizing the DNS round robin to shift traffic to the other server, which is not being rebooted at this time, so we expect no interruption in service.
