Planned outage for Fedora Account System 2021-03-24 10:30UTC


Last week there was an announcement sent on the planned outage due to the migration to the new Fedora Account System. Unfortunately, we made an error in the starting date when writing the announcement.

We intend to start the outage on Wednesday 2021-03-24 10:30UTC which will last for approximately two days. Having the outage on a Wednesday and Thursday allows an extra working day before the weekend to address any issues should they arise.

We know this is not ideal and apologize for the short notice of this correction.

This outage has been planned to migrate systems with as little interruption as possible to services for users. During this 'outage' time, you may experience a sudden 'user unknown' scenario. In this case, please try to re-authenticate into the service after an hour.

If this change causes a major issue please contact us as soon as possible to let us try to address the situation in advance of the outage.

We had always planned for this outage to be on Wednesday and Thursday, but misread our own calendar when sending the earlier announcement.

For details on how this effects you please see this mail
