Scheduled Service Change: Directory attribute changes
Each of the 4 directory servers, ds1.directory.cornell.edu through ds4.directory.cornell.edu will be restarted in sequence between 6:30 and 7:00 AM. The only effect should be to any application that is connecting explicitly to one server (such as ds1.directory.cornell.edu) rather than the load-balanced URL directory.cornell.edu. Following the restarts, a conversion program will be run to populate the new attributes; this is expected to take 4 hours, but will not impact operations.\n\nNote that ds5 is an alias for ds1, ds6 for ds2, and ds7 for ds3, so URLs ds5.directory.cornell.edu through ds7.directory.cornell.edu work but are not distinct servers.
There is no workaround for this issue
New attributes added to the Directory schema. This change has been announced to NET-ADMIN-L and CIT-ALL-L and is fully described at https://confluence.cornell.edu/x/YwMHE
