A new server will become cronus shortly after 7am.
Though the scheduled downtime is 7am to 7:30am, we expect actual downtime to be less. Devices on the IRIS networks should be able to use rhea for NIS, time and DNS services while cronus is down.
If you have any questions or notice any issues, please contact help@eecs aka the IRIS help desk (395 Cory M-F 9:30am-5pm, 642-7777)

The new cronus is providing NIS, time and DNS service.
We advise if you are trying to use cronus for NIS or DNS and you are not connected to the IRIS network (such as in the Data Center at Warren Hall) please make sure that you are using IP address 188.8.131.52 which for many linux distributions is configured in /etc/yp.conf for NIS and in /etc/resolv.conf for DNS.
As of April 18, 2018 cronus is properly replying on all of it’s interfaces/IP addresses. That is devices not directly on the IRIS networks are no longer required to use IP address 184.108.40.206.
