Emergency Maintenance: VPC Hosts


By Dan Miller on 13th November, 2018.

We are performing essential security updates to hosts running our VPC Platform

Site: All VPC Customers
Date: Wednesday 5th December to Friday 8th December
Time: Between 0900 BST and 1800 BST
Works: VMware ESXi Update

What are we doing?

We are upgrading our ESXi hosts at all VPC sites following recommended advise from VMware to mitigate the latest security risks.

What does this mean to you?

Customer virtual machines should remain unaffected by this maintenance.

Live migration (vMotion) will be used to move virtual machines between physical servers during this maintenance whilst keeping them online.

Update 1 – 11:30;

Please note – We are currently experiencing issues with this maintenance and are working through them to correct the problems seen.

During this time you may experience issues accessing/using your virtual private cloud, however your virtual machine’s should remain unaffected.

We will post a further update in an hour.

Update 2 – 12:30;

Please note – The environment is now stable and the problems seen with the VPC are resolved.

We will be continuing with the scheduled maintenance this afternoon and will confirm once complete.
