On Tuesday 31st October 2017, EXN will be upgrading our vDC (Virtual Data Centre) management portal for both the Global Switch 2 and Virtus Enfield vDCs. This will affect the management interfaces for customers using https://vdc.exn.uk/
During the maintenance, EXN will be upgrading our vCloud Director installation to version 9.0, which is the latest version of the vCloud Director software suite. The upgrade procedure has been tested several times in our lab environment and we expect the work to go smoothly. While the maintenance will bring down all management functions for your VMs, the machines themselves will remain untouched but should be considered "AT RISK" while the work is being carried out.
Please note the timezone change which takes place on 29/10/2017: we are currently in BST (UTC +1) however this maintenance will take place in GMT (UTC +0).
