Applying Server Updates (Oct 30)

This Sunday, October 30th between 6AM and 10AM we will patch and reboot operating systems. Most security updates can be applied without rebooting, but the changes we are making require a server restart. We are also going to take this opportunity to patch the Oracle Database software as well.

Most server outages will be brief since a restart takes less than a minute. However, the larger Voyager and Oracle servers could be down for around a half-hour.

Network Switch Failure

At approximately 6:19PM today (Friday, June 6th), one of two redundant network switches in the Production Data Center went into an odd state. All lights were on, but no traffic was moving in the switch. CARLI servers are plugged into both switches for redundancy, but the failure took down all networking. The failed switch was restarted and all services were back online at 6:54PM.

We will need to look closely at the log files to see if we can determine what caused the network switch error and why the redundancy did not protect us from this error.
