On Wednesday, March 16, from approximately 7pm-10pm, IDSG will be upgrading the master LDAP server, ldapmaster.eecs.berkeley.edu. During that time, attempts to write to LDAP will fail. None of the read-only slaves will be offline, and as such, most LDAP-dependent services should continue to function.
The following should be the list of things that won’t work during the upgrade.
- LDAP password changes (either through the helpdesk password reset webpage, or the IMAP webmail client on imap.eecs)
- Roster account creation/modification/deletion
- Ports database changes
NIS password changes (ssh’ing to passwd.eecs) and Windows AD password changes will continue to work.
