On Monday 19th August we will replace the SSH server named “hare” which hosts staff.ssh.inf.ed.ac.uk with a machine named “steen”.
All that will happen is that at about 08:00 on Monday we will change the DNS alias to point to the new machine. This change can take some time to propagate so we will not switch off access to hare immediately. It will be left running as normal until 12:00 Thursday 22nd August. This should 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 to 184.108.40.206, your SSH client may warn you about this change and request verification. For reference the new SHA256 host key fingerprints are:
- RSA –
- ECDSA –
- ED25519 –
