Upcoming Work

Important: Updates have been shifted up a week due to the Thanksgiving break. The information below applies to Engineering Linux systems managed by ETS.


On Wednesday, November 16th at 10:00 P.M., ETS will start the process that updates all COE Linux systems managed by ETS. 

·         The process will take some time and will run overnight. We do not expect the update process to cause interruptions, but we recommend that you save any open documents before the update process begins.


On Thursday, November 17th at 7:15 A.M., ETS will begin rebooting all COE Linux systems managed by ETS.

·         Please save your work and logoff before the reboot process begins to avoid losing any unsaved work.


Please ensure that any Linux systems you, or a group you manage uses, are powered on before November 16th to ensure they are updated and rebooted.


If you encounter any issues on your Linux system(s) after 9:00 A.M. on Thursday, November 17th, please submit an ETS ticket at  In the ticket description, please note that it's a Linux system, the hostname of the system, and its location (if known), and someone will assist you as soon as they are available.
