|Server||A machine that is used by the infrastructure, usually only accessed directly by an Admin. Usually located in a server room.|
OpenSuse 11.2 to OpenSuSE 13.1:
Will NOT be updated (might be updated upon request, they will be updated in a future scheduled maintenance)
Should be substituted with new machines:
Should be removed or reassigned:
To be scheduled.
Machines with unsupported operating systems should be upgraded. However:
OpenSuSE dropped or will drop support for most of the OS versions we have. As a result the machines are at security risk and most of the libraries will stay obsoleted and without bugfixes. Sources:
Some machines running Scientific Linux have unsupported libraries and hardware.
Planned Upgrade is either to Lubuntu 12.04 or Ubuntu 14.04 for Workstations/Remote Workstations or Centos 6.5 for Servers.
