Please Do Not Open Service Tickets For This Issue
These updates are required to protect the security and safe operations of not only our infrastructure, but yours as well. We understand that a disruption with such limited notice is inconvenient, and we hope you understand that these measures are warranted due to the severity of the XSAs (Xen Security Advisories).
Unfortunately, due the logistical demands of this effort, your assigned windows are not changeable and the host reboots are mandatory.
Please spread the word that all services will not be accessible for the duration of their planned maintenance.
As always, if you have any additional questions; concerns or information regarding the above, or any current events or outages, please do not hesitate to contact the Webministry.
In Service to the Kingdom,
