Two physical hosts are now unmanageable. Some VMs on these hosts are fully responsive and others are not. We are going to shut down one host at 11:00am. The other host, we are actively working on diagnosing the issue with vendors. The second host will likely eventually have to be restarted as well. We will announce the shutdown time of the second as soon as possible.
We are reaching out to customers with VMs on the first host now to ask them to shut down their VMs gracefully, if possible, and have sent an announcement to all UT-V customer technical contacts.
