[Completed] Security Patching for Managed SolusVM Hypervisor, April 6, 2021
Posted by David Cunningham on 05 April 2021 09:19 PM
Completion [ Tue 06 Apr 2021 10:09:40 PM MDT ] : Maintenance is completed, with all virtual servers confirmed as restored to service and apparently functioning normally.|
Update [ Tue 06 Apr 2021 09:28:39 PM MDT]: Maintenance pre-tasks are complete, and SolusVM guests are being shut down. Virtual servers meeting the previously outlined criteria will be impacted until the host finishes rebooting.
Purpose of Work:
We've done some vulnerability scanning on our internal network, and found that our SolusVM hypervisor is in need of some patching.
During this maintenance, we'll be updating the management scripts of SolusVM, as well as the kernel and all packages on both the management and hypervisor nodes.
This will take place at 9:15PM on April 6, 2021.
Impact of Work:
All non-HA VPS (identifiable by having an IP on subnet 22.214.171.124/25) will be temporarily shut down when the time to reboot the HV arrives. Impact should last until the reboot is complete, at which time VPS will be brought back up and monitored closely.
Questions from affected customers can be fielded during the maintenance, with updates being provided during maintenance milestones on request.
