Login Server Downtime
Apart from the file-, mail- and web servers exists another crucial element of our core server infrastructure, namely the servers managing the account information and logins (LDAP). With a current uptime of a remarkable 550 days, it is time for an upgrade of the operating system and high-availability cluster software. For this reason we schedule a downtime on Wednesday 18th July between 07:00 and 08:00.
Most services will be affected and unavailable during that time, as they require an authentication with your D-Phys account (email, file server, print server, managed workstations). Note that, even though you will not be able to check your emails or send new ones, all incoming mails will be received and safely delivered to your inbox afterwards.
If everything goes smoothly, the actual downtime should be considerably less than the scheduled hour.
