Mars Kernel Upgrade [11/05/2007]


Recommended Posts

On Monday November 5th between 10:30am EST and 11:00am EST we will be upgrading the kernel of the Mars server. We expect this to take under 30 minutes to complete with about 5 minutes of down time while we reboot the server.

The reason for the kernel upgrade is for the machine to receive the latest performance increases, bug fixes, feature enhancements and security fixes.

If you have any questions or concerns about this maintenance do not hesitate to contact our support department.

The Mars server kernel has been upgraded.

It took slightly longer than expected as the machine wanted to due a simple fsck on the drives once it rebooted. This was most likely due to it not shutting down fully as a result it had to check it's files.

No data was lost during the fsck so it simply meant it took 12 minutes to reboot opposed to 5 minutes.
