The Linux storage system kc-is-rmbs.kc.umkc.edu will be offline for deployment of kernel-level security patches on Sunday evening the first weekend in March 2018. Access to the system will be restored as soon as possible upon verification of software and storage integrity, prior to the start of the work week. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Our phone carrier is having issues that is resulting in intermittent phone outages when calling to or from campus. During one of these outages the caller will hear "Due to heavy call volume, your call cannot be completed at this time.
We will be removing the System Center Operations Manager agents from campus computers. This will be setup to do the removal at computer startup time. The events intended to be collected by this agent will be collected using other means. This will help free up system resources on machines, and also removes a system that would need to be scheduled for domain centralization.
This removal will occur on any machine reboot after 5pm on January 26th.
Workstations would likely have the agent removed during their weekly reboot on January the 29th, servers would be February 26th at 2am during the next monthly Microsoft Update cycle. (unless a machine is rebooted sooner for any reason.)
No other functionality or behavior change should be seen on any affected machine.
