On Tuesday 16th April we plan to replace the SSH server named “dunlin”
which hosts student.ssh.inf.ed.ac.uk and ssh.inf.ed.ac.uk with a
machine named “kubelik”.
All that will happen is that at about 09:00 on Tuesday we will change
the DNS aliases to point to the new machine. This change can take some
time to propagate so we will not switch off access to dunlin
immediately. It will be left running as normal until 12:00 Friday 19th
April. This should also allow sufficient time for users logged in at
that point to finish their existing sessions and move to the new
The IP address for the service will change from
188.8.131.52, your SSH client may warn you about this change and
request verification. The SSH host keys for the service will not
change when we switch to the new server. For reference the RSA host
key fingerprint is:
