Compute nodes and desktop machines running RHEL6 will be rebooted on Thursday (December 1st).  Hosts running CentOS 7 (our newer operating system) will not be rebooted.  Updates will be applied to machines between 7:00pm and midnight. 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 7:00pm. 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 following machines have the updates:
