Spacewalk 2.8 Production Upgrade: 22 June 2019 at 04:00 PDT (UTC-7)

Attention all CloudLinux OS customers.

We have exciting and long-anticipated news: Spacewalk 2.8 production upgrade is scheduled for June 22, starting at 4 am PDT. We’re telling you now because this upgrade may cause up to two hours of downtime on your servers.

The CLN team has been working for all of Q2 to make sure this big change goes smoothly. We hope you can cooperate with us and be prepared. Here’s how.

If you have any manual or automatic RPM-updates scheduled for this time, we suggest you pause or re-schedule it to avoid complications.

The results of our extensive test plans have been good. However, there are always risks with such upgrades. So we have laid plans for a roll-back to version 2.4, should anything go wrong. In that event, the downtime could be up to six hours.

If you have any concerns, our support team is ready to answer them.

Beta: rhn-client-tools updated
Beta: Alt-php updated

"We’re telling you now because this upgrade may cause up to two hours of downtime on your servers."

Maybe rephrase a bit Hopefully you upgrading SpaceWalk will not result in our servers going down.

No downtime for the servers. But you will not be able to update packages / install new software at that time.

Good luck with the update CLN team Wouldn't it make more sense to upgrade to v2.9 since it was released in January?

Very scary the way it is phrased. It didn't make sense that a software update could actually cause 6 hours of downtime and your comments confirmed it too. Mybe rephrase it to somethink like this :

this upgrade may cause spacewalk to stop working / become unavailable for up to two hours
In that event, spacewalk's unavailability could be up to six hours
