Scheduled Service Change: OS patching for prod Sun One directory on Yew8
Applications use directory.cornell.edu to connect to production directories. This name does a DNS RR between the service that lives on yew8 and yew9. \n\nAfter the OS patching is complete, the server is restarted and during this restart the service will be unavailable on yew9. \n\nApplications that connect to yew8 during the restart period will not get their LDAP requests served.\n
There is no workaround for this issue
S&O will be patching the OS as part of their 6 month patch cycle.
