sorry for crossposting on three lists, but I need to reach out to
Since we're running out of IPs for our virtual machines, we will migrate
to a larger subnet in the next days. This will mean that everyone who
runs a virtual machine and has set up rules based on the current IP
address needs to adapt it.
We will change the IP on our side, and also the bridging to the VM as
well as the DNS entries, whose TTL we will lower before to make the
migration go smooth, but in case you made manual adaptions, we need your
help, since deeply investigating every of the currently 13 VMs is a bit
If you have access to one or more of the TDF systems, and are not sure
whether you are using a VM, the following might help:
- Do you have root access? If so, you most likely have VM.
- Is the hostname vmX(Y).documentfoundation.org? Then it's a VM.
- Try the host command on the command line to find out if your system is
on a VM:
- $ host gerrit.libreoffice.org
gerrit.libreoffice.org has address 220.127.116.11
- $ host 18.104.22.168
22.214.171.124.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer vm2.documentfoundation.org
If you maintain a VM, *please* do ping us at
hostmaster at documentfoundation.org directly so we can keep you in the
loop. Do *not* reply to this list, do *not* write to me individually,
but rather, write to hostmaster at documentfoundation.org
Plus, if you maintain a VM, please check where the IP address is stored,
beside /etc/hosts and /etc/network/interfaces and possible firewall
rules (ufw status resp. iptables -L -n), so you know where to change
them when the switch happens.
Sorry for these inconveniences, and thanks for your work on LibreOffice!
