On Monday 3rd April we will replace the SSH server named schiff which hosts ssh.inf.ed.ac.uk and student.ssh.inf.ed.ac.uk with a machine named bruegel.
All that will happen is that at about 08:00 on Monday 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 schiff immediately. It will be left running as normal until 12:00 Friday 7th April. 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
126.96.36.199, your SSH client may warn you about this change and request verification. For reference the new host key fingerprints are:
RSA - e9:ca:09:89:a9:42:96:c2:08:4c:8a:1f:1b:34:ee:0c ECDSA - d7:5b:79:84:49:94:fb:e5:9a:c7:a3:29:83:65:e4:f8 ED25519 - f4:0e:ba:42:a5:e4:10:99:ba:67:05:e7:44:5f:9f:c2
