** Maintenance Announcement – DEV VM service interruption anticipated **

We are upgrading our StoreVirtual firmware from  LeftHand OS 10.0 -> LeftHand OS 10.5. During the upgrade of the storage that provides the DEV VMware cluster will be unavailable, as such the Dev VMware cluster will also be shut down.

Production 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.

** Maintenance Announcement – Partial service interruption anticipated **

We will be patching the OS’s and installing the latest VMware tools against our vCenter server infrastructure. During the first part of this maintenance window support personal will not be able to access vCenter. Because of this support personal will not have remote console access. For example, if a VM has a kernel panic then the support personal will have to wait until maintenance ends to resolve the issue.

Regular remote access mechanisms like ssh or remote desktop to the VMs will be unaffected. All VMs and their services will continue to run as normal. There should be no customer impact.
