MAY 2020 DOWNTIME: OS and other software upgrade

(1/4) > >>

So far, just an early warning.  Details to follow.

I am planning to update the operating system and all installed software on the TM/METAL server some time the week of May 11 or May 18.  Once I know the date and time, I'll let you know. 

It's a minor version upgrade plus some security updates, so I don't anticipate any problems, but you never know.  If all goes well, most services will be running normally except for a few minutes at a time during reboots.  If it doesn't, then things are down as long as it takes me to figure out what happened and to fix it.

Since access to the Siena College campus is currently highly restricted, I need to do this during regular working hours while the essential IT staff is on campus and could let me in to the machine room if problems arise and I need console access.

Would an upgrade of gcc be included? ;)

I'm sure it will, but if there's a particular version you'd like it to go to, I am sure I can make it happen.

I don't have a particular version in mind.
On noreaster, If I don't disable multithreading at the preprocessor, siteupdate.cpp will compile fine, but not run: /usr/local/lib/gcc5/ version GLIBCXX_3.4.22 required by /home/yakra/TravelMapping/DataProcessing/siteupdate/cplusplus/siteupdate_foo not found

Tentatively looking at the upcoming week for this, either Wednesday 5/13 or Thursday 5/14.
