E-UNI Server Restart 2017-12-03 07:00

The EVE University primary server (aura) and secondary server (hiigara) will be restarted at 07:00 UTC (aka EVE Time) on Sunday 3-December-2017. This will interrupt all EVE University online resources, including forums, wiki, Mumble, and internal tools.

The actual loss of service may not happen at exactly that time but up to 15+ minutes later. If all goes well, then I anticipate the server to be back up typically within 15 minutes. But just in case all does not go well, that time was chosen so that the server downtime for correcting the problem will hopefully impact as few players as possible, while still allowing the server admins to get some sleep IRL.

The scheduled time is 5 hours before the normally-scheduled daily EVE Online downtime.

To avoid further cluttering the Notice Board forum, this thread will be reused. The subject and this first post will be updated for each subsequent scheduled server update. Comments and questions may still be posted to this thread, but they may be merged with or split into a different thread later if they are specific to a single restart and that restart has already been completed.

Re: E-UNI Server Restart 2017-07-02 06:00

Hey just out of curiosity are these server restarts usually Scheduled ahead of time or do they happen whenever there is a problem that needs fixed on the back end?

ALSO

Are there updates posted somewhere, on the specifics of what was actually done while the servers were down? Or are they being restarted simply as a regular monthly/bi-monthly maintenance type of thing?

Re: E-UNI Server Restart 2017-07-02 06:00

Restarts are scheduled ahead of time, usually near the beginning of each month though lately we have been able to skip months. What is typically done is simply unspecific maintenance (we've had issues in the past when the server was left running for several months without a restart) but we also apply system updates. We don't list exactly what was done because there's typically nothing to list except "apt-get upgrade" over and over. :) Or we could list exactly which packages were updated, but that would not be particularly useful to anybody.

If issues arise or our own software needs updating, then those are typically resolved immediately instead of waiting for the next scheduled restart.
