On Tuesday 26th August we plan to replace the SSH server named hogwood which hosts staff.ssh.inf.ed.ac.uk with a machine named brendel.
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 hogwood immediately. It will be left running as normal until 12:00 Friday 29th August. This should also allow sufficient time for users logged in to finish their existing sessions and move to the new server.
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. For reference the new RSA host key fingerprint is:
