All,We’re going to move the MCS core wiki services to new hardware andoperating system next Tuesday, 10/14, at 5:00pm.  This will bring us upto date with the latest version of Mediawiki (1.13.2) and increase thestability and security of each site.  The list of vhosts affected bythis move is the following:wiki.mcs.anl.govwiki.alcf.anl.govbionet.mcs.anl.govcgat-wiki.mcs.anl.govigsb-core.mcs.anl.govwiki.bgl.mcs.anl.govwiki.lcrc.anl.govreu.cogkit.orgwater.cogkit.orgI estimate 2-3 hours for the work to complete, with wiki.mcs.anl.gov andwiki.alcf.anl.gov having the longest downtime due to the number of wikisper site.If anyone has any objections to a wiki being down at this time, pleaselet us know so we can schedule a separate upgrade.Thanks,Ken
