Mozilla Scheduled Downtime – 9/11/2007, 7pm – 10pm PDT (0200 – 0500 9/12/2007 UTC)

We will have a scheduled downtime window tomorrow night from 7pm to 10pm PDT. The following changes will take place:

* 7pm PDT (0200 UTC) – Kernel upgrades. We’ll be doing kernel security updates on various machines affecting the following services for approximately 10 minutes each:
– Email for all domains we host
– Breakpad
– CVS, cvs-mirror, SVN, Hg
– quality.mozilla.org
– Bugzilla
– Bonsai
– LXR/MXR
– Tinderbox
– ftp.mozilla.org
– stage.mozilla.org
– irc.mozilla.org
– mail.mozilla.org
– lists.mozilla.org
– videos.mozilla.org
– all other dynamic and database-backed websites (addons, blog, crash-reports, developer, download(bouncer), firefoxflicks, labs, livetitles, mozilla-europe, pastebin, quality, reporter, survey, wiki, firefoxparty, worldfirefoxday, addons-facebook)

* 7pm PDT (0200 UTC) – VLAN ACL implementation. We’ll be adding another layer of internal network security. No downtime is expected.

Please let me know if you have any reason why we should not proceed with the planned maintenance. As always, we aim to keep downtime to as little as possible, but unexpected complications can arise causing longer downtime periods than expected. All systems should be
operational by the end of the maintenance window. Feel free to email infra at mozilla.com if you see issues past the planned downtime.

Thanks,
-Justin
