openSUSE.org Scheduled Outage

July 9th, 2010 by

On Saturday, July 10th from 09:00 AM CET to 03:00 PM CET, our infrastructure vendor will be shutting down services in the Nuremberg (Germany) data center to allow for a scheduled maintenance of the main power supply. As result, general network connectivity from and to the location will not be available.

Due to a separate maintenance activity the openSUSE Build Service will only be available again by 07:00 PM CET.

As result, the following services will not be available:

* http://build.opensuse.org
* http://software.opensuse.org

* http://svn.opensuse.org
* http://community.opensuse.org
* http://education.opensuse.org
* http://powerpc.opensuse.org
* http://boosters.opensuse.org
* http://board.opensuse.org
* http://users.opensuse.org
* http://hermes.opensuse.org
* http://notify.opensuse.org
* http://retro.opensuse.org
* http://connect.opensuse.org
* http://crashdb.opensuse.org
* http://gallery.opensuse.org

The staging version of these sites will be similarly affected.

Please spread the news about this, so that we can keep user disruption to a minimum.

    • The move should be completed in 10 – 15 minutes
  • During the move
    • The wikis will stay live
    • The old and new English wikis will behave unexpectedly at some points
    • www.opensuse.org and the other language wikis should not be affected at all
  • After the move
    • The old wiki (currently en.opensuse.org) will be located at old-en.opensuse.org
    • The new wiki (currently wiki.opensuse.org) will be located at en.opensuse.org
    • wiki.opensuse.org will be an alias for en.opensuse.org

The wiki team has worked hard to get the new wiki tested and perfected for Monday.  However, if any issues are discovered after the switch, please send a message to webmaster@opensuse.org or file a bug at http://bugzilla.novell.com under the openSUSE.org product.
