Security/Software Updates (Linux reboots)
Following up on the home home directory server updates, we'll be doing Linux system updates the following day. Compute nodes as well as desktop machines WILL BE REBOOTED on Tuesday (Jan. 22nd). Rolling updates will be applied to machines between 8pm and 12am. In an effort to try and minimize any corrupted files or lost work, please save all your data and logout of any linux systems before 8pm. Many of the updates have already been made on several linux machines in the computer lab located in WWH229. We urge people to test any packages that are critical to their work and let us know if they encounter any problems before the updates occur. The machines that have been updated are:
- WWH229: pubbox1.cims.nyu.edu
Some significant software updates include (but are not limitted to):
- Linux kernel (automatic REBOOT)
A full list of all software updates for linux and solaris is available on the update page.
