ITS Service Status Report

Emergency Maintenance

Desktop Virtualization

Start Time: 09/22/2018 11:00 pm

Anticipated End Time: 09/23/2018 12:30 am

We are updating the vCenter environment that supports MiDesktop. This is in response to the L1 Terminal Fault vulnerability (VMSA-2018-0020 / CVE-2018-3646).

During the upgrade, admins will not be able to log into vcenter.midesktop.it.umich.edu to administer their virtual machines, but virtual machines will continue to run uninterrupted. Following the upgrade, there will be a reboot period of about 30 minutes during which time new desktop sessions cannot be created - users already logged in will be unaffected. No changes to MiDesktop base images or pools are necessary.

Issue Symptoms: Degradation
