Xen Upgrades Completed **All Clear**

We have now successfully finished updating all of our Xen nodes and are pleased to say they all have a clean bill of health, as well as running the latest Xen version.

If you are on a Xen PV VPS, we have also rotated our kernels. We strongly reccomend any Xen PV customers who are not using Pygrub, click Reboot inside SolusVM which will automatically restart your VPS onto the latest kernel, and copy the matching kernel modules inside your VPS.

As always, if you have any problems let us know and we will be happy to help!

Scheduled Reboots 20/06/12

We are continuing maintenance work on our Xen VPS nodes this evening. The following servers will be restarted from 9.00PM (GMT+1)

* xn13.pcsmarthosting.co.uk = Completed
* xn15.pcsmarthosting.co.uk = Completed
* xn16.pcsmarthosting.co.uk = Completed

Please Note: Since these machines had over a year of uptime, a number of VPS are doing a FSCK causing high IOWAIT on the host machines and delaying the startup process. If your VPS is not online it will come online by itself, please be patient and do not try to reboot it from SolusVM. Thanks
