Update - The network uplink maintenance was accidentally scheduled for 11:35 CET today but was intended to be scheduled for 22:00 CET tonight. We have adjusted the schedule of this maintenance to properly reflect the maintenance tonight. We are sorry for the confusion, caused by a UI glitch.
Feb 16, 08:41 CET
Scheduled - Following up on our improvement from this week our data center will enable the new configuration on the second upstream router.

Original description of the maintenance from this week:

To improve our data center uplink availability when performing a fail-over between redundant routers we are going to improve the configuration together with the data center. Our current configuration causes around 20-30 seconds of traffic forwarding interruption and will be improved to fail over in 5 seconds or less. We expect to perform a few fail-over actions in this period to validate the new configuration which will cause small temporary interruptions.

Completed - The scheduled maintenance has been completed.
Feb 15, 13:00 CET
In progress - Scheduled maintenance is currently in progress. We will provide updates as necessary.
Feb 15, 10:00 CET
Scheduled - We will upgrade all remaining staging/dev/test VMs that are using the environment fc-19.03-staging to our current platform version fc-20.09-staging. VMs will switch to the new version in the given time range or later in scheduled maintenance, depending on project configuration.

The upgrades should work automatically but we will monitor the progress and analyze errors if they arise. Some configurations may break due to additional security restrictions for SystemD services in NixOS 20.09 or changed package versions, for example.

As we are using NixOS, a large part of possible errors is already caught while building the system which prevents the switch to the new version until the configuration is fixed.
