GOC Service Update - 13:00 UTC September 27th

The GOC will upgrade the following services beginning Tuesday, September 27th, 2011 at 13:00 UTC. The GOC reserves four hours (13:00 - 17:00 UTC) in the unlikely event that unexpected problems are encountered. We encourage users to test affected services before the production release.

VM Move

myosg2.grid.iu.edu and data2.grid.iu.edu will be moved from their current VM host in Indianapolis to a host in Bloomington. This has been done with twiki.grid and oim.grid in the past. These hosts are each part of a DNS round-robin, which will be used to direct traffic to the hosts that are not moving, so we expect no interruption in service due to this move. This is an advisory just in case, however.

OS Updates

We will be installing Red Hat Enterprise Linux updates to all services, including an update to Apache that addresses the RANGE header vulnerability (CVE-2011-3192). There is a kernel patch included, which means that there will need to be restarts. Downtime is to be expected, although in the case of is.grid.iu.edu we will make use of DNS to route traffic to the server that is up.
