We need to reboot the staff SSH server (brendel) to upgrade it to Scientific Linux 7.3. This is just a minor upgrade from SL7.2 to SL7.3 which will have very few user-visible changes. We plan to do this at 8am on Friday 2nd June (tomorrow). We do not expect the service to be unavailable for more than about 15 minutes but it should be considered “at risk” until 9am.
During the period of downtime the alternative SSH server – ssh.inf.ed.ac.uk – will be available.
