We will be migrating our existing VM hosts to a new vCenter server from 10am-10pm Saturday February 7th.  This will not impact running VMs nor your ability to RDP or SSH into the VM.

During the maintenance both the current and new vCenters will be active in the event you need to manage a VM (console, power on/off, etc).  However, you will need to check both as the VM may have moved.  The URLs for the vCenters during the maintenance are listed below.  At the conclusion of the maintenance the active URL of the new vCenter will be the same as the current vCenter.

Current vcenter: https://vcenter.sig.oregonstate.edu
Temporary new vcenter: https://vcenter2.sig.oregonstate.edu

 

Start: 2/7/2015 10:00

End: 2/7/2015 22:00

If you need help finding a VM you can contact us during the maintenance at: 7-7SIG (7-7744).

** Maintenance Announcement – No service interruption anticipated **

We will be applying a firmware update to our iSCSI switches that support our StoreVirtual SAN. This is the storage network that back’s our VMware infrastructure.

We do not anticipate any service interruption. Our switching is redundant, we will only change the switches one at a time, and the changes should not be service interrupting.

Start: 5/24/2013 10:00:00 PM

End: 5/24/2013 11:59:59 PM

If you have questions or concerns about this maintenance, please contact the Shared Infrastructure Group at osu-sig (at) oregonstate.edu or call 737-7SIG.

** Maintenance Announcement – NO service interruption anticipated **

We are upgrading our StoreVirtual individual hard drive firmware.

Production and Dev SANs are redundant and maintenance will have no noticeable effect on these SANs, meaning that the OSU systems used by students, staff, and faculty will not experience a service interruption.

Start Time: 3/29/2013 at 9:00 PM

End Time:  3/29/2013 at 4:00 AM
