Hi Mirror Admins
With the switch to a new mirror server this Thursday, we will also switch to a new scanner machine, running the constant scans on all mirror servers world wide.
At the moment, we scan mostly via charybdis-ext.suse.de (aka nat.nue.novell.com): * 188.8.131.52 * 2620:113:80c0:5::2222
The new scanner will be in the same network range, but explizitely named scanner.opensuse.org for your convenience: * 184.108.40.206 * 2001:67c:2178:8::20
During this week, your machines will get hits from both scanners, as we want to see if there are some differences in the scan results. If everything goes as planned, we will shut down the old scanner and switch over to scanner.opensuse.org this Thursday.
Please note that we always recommend to allow rsync traffic for our scanners, as this has a significant impact on speed and correctness of the results. If it's not possible for you to allow read-only rsync access from the world, please allow at least the (open)SUSE IP ranges: * 220.127.116.11/22 * 2001:067c:2178::/48
Note 2: for push mirrors, we additionally scan via stage.opensuse.org: * 18.104.22.168 * 2001:67c:2178:8::10 This will stay as before, even after the switch over.
Thanks and kind regards, in the name of the openSUSE heroes, Lars
