This upgrade was originally slated for 2015-05-09 but was postponed to the next day.

Tonight the HipChat server will be upgraded for an emergency patch. This upgrade will update the server to version 2.0 (from 1.4). Unfortunately there is no fix to the server unless we do this major upgrade. This upgrade will take around 1 hour and requires a reboot, which will forcefully log everybody out. For a list of all changes see: https://confluence.atlassian.com/hc/hipchat-server-release-notes-608731400.html

SPAM

We seem to be getting hit with SPAM. We try to remove them as fast as we can. If you see any please forward it to opensource@ncsa.illinois.edu and we'll remove them. The only option to prevent SPAM is to disable the account creation, which is something we don't want to do.

I installed a plugin that will allow you to mark items as spam, please us this to help us remove SPAM ASAP.

Updated finished

JIRA, Confluence, Bamboo, Bitbucket, FishEye, HipCHat and Nexus all have been updated to the latest version. 

During some rearranging of equipment in the machine room I accidentally unplugged opensource which resulted in an outage. At around 14:00 the system was back up and running. No data was lost during this time and all services are back up and running.

2015-02-19 Server Reboot

I will be rebooting all servers tonight around 9pm CET for a security patch. Downtime should be minimal.

2016-02-07 Software Update

JIRA and Confluence have been updated and migrated to a new server. During this process plugins had to be reinstalled. If any plugins are missing or things are not working as before please send email to opensource@ncsa.illinois.edu and we will look at this ASAP.

Bitbucket has been updated to 4.3.2 and now supports LFS.

Sunday, 2015-02-07 both confluence and JIRA will be migrated to new servers. During this migration both services will be updated to the latest version. This will hopefully help with some of the slowness that sometimes happens as well give us the ability to restart individual servers instead of a reboot of all services. This will allow us to fine tune the servers for better performance for each of the services. This should however not impact NCSA Open Source and you should still be able to access the services as https://opensource.ncsa.illinois.edu/jira and https://opensouce.ncsa.illinois.edu/confluence as before.

This will upgrade JIRA to version 7.0.10 which is a major version jump, as always please let me know if anything does not work as expected. The update to Bitbucket will allow for LFS git repositories. These will be enabled for now. We will keep an eye on the disk usage to see how this impacts the resources provided. Other services that will be updated:

software : Bamboo
current : 5.9.7
version : 5.10.0

NCSA password

For those that have an NCSA username and password, and the username used in opensource matches the username is NCSA kerberos, you can now request to use your NCSA password. You will need to send an email or HipChat message to Rob Kooper (kooper@illinois.edu) to enable this. Unfortunately due to issue CWD-2627 I can not enable you to login with either your NCSA password or your Opensource password. If you choose to use your NCSA password you will no longer be able to login with your opensource password.

We will update HipChat to the newest version 1.3.7 on Sunday morning (https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/HC/HipChat+Server+Release+Notes). This downtime should be only 15 minutes. All users will be disconnected and might have to relogin.
