The system is going down for reboot NOW!


A service status posting would have been nice - thanks for nothing!

We are currently investigating a problem with CGI websites not displaying giving "forbidden" errors.

We will post a further update when more information is available.

Mabe its just me but I would have assumed that various things were going to be offline and it would be best to leave it alone

1. Whenever we have had postings like that in the past it's just been ccgi servers and not cshell.

2. cshell was working perfectly well as far as I could see.

3. They could have done a reboot in x minutes to give us some chance to get out/save what we were doing.

SHUTDOWN( 8 ) Linux System Administrator's Manual SHUTDOWN( 8 )

NAME
shutdown - bring the system down

SYNOPSIS
/sbin/shutdown [-t sec] [-arkhncfFHP] time [warning-message]

DESCRIPTION
shutdown brings the system down in a secure way. All logged-in users
are notified that the system is going down, and login(1) is blocked.
<snip>
OPTIONS
-a Use /etc/shutdown.allow.

-t sec Tell init( 8 ) to wait sec seconds between sending processes the
warning and the kill signal, before changing to another run-
level.


All they had to do was "shutdown -t 180" and everyone connected would have got a warning that it was going down in three minutes. One day they'll pause for two nano-seconds and think of the users (Oh look, there's some more bacon going past the window).

I meant there was no point in creating a new post for my one minor question about load balancing on the ccgi server that was all

Ah sorry. I thought you were questioning my point about a post alerting the cshell users it was about to go down. Shockedops:

Still can't see why they couldn't have given us a warning.
