SCS Computing Facilities master Kerberos server reboot scheduled

Day/Date: Monday, March 15, 2010

Time: 7:00AM - 8:00AM

Service Affected: Kerberos Master


SCS Computing Facilities will be rebooting the master Kerberos server AVOCADO.SRV.CS.CMU.EDU in order to change its network configuration.

Services which involve making changes to the Kerberos database will be interrupted. This includes Kerberos password changes (kpasswd), the Kerberos Instance Manager, and Kerberos-related operations in Jeeves. In addition, Kerberos authentication service may be degraded, causing logins and access to Kerberos-authenticated services to take longer than usual.

Please contact the SCS Help Desk at x8-4231 or send mail to with any questions or concerns regarding this maintenance period.

Thank you for your attention,

SCS Help Desk
