Ils s'agit un 'soft-reboot', pour moi, le tech de KS a du saisir la commande reboot après avoir eu l'accès ssh .....
Tant mieux peut être, si l'accès 'ssh' (avec leur clé à eux) ne fonctionne pas, ils procéderons à un déco-réco reset.

when the monitoring detect a ping lose he send automatic et manual (with tech) reboot.

If you don't want you server to reboot desactivate the monitoring simply.

KS ==> NO SLA, for test/pratice/learning and all maintenance task are on

Yesterday morning I received an email from kimsufi support that they rebooted my server because it was not pingable. First of all I was not having any network issues before, so it must have been something on their side. Why did they not contact me and ask if I was ok with them rebooting my server? I could have try something else before doing a reboot via the backend webconsole.

Here's there email:

I don't read/speak french, but the little what I can make of it is that they upgraded a a few switches in two of their datacenters causing the servers on those nets to lose network connection. Then their support rebooted all the servers that lost network connection. Cuz I have a friend who als rents a kimsifi server his server wasn't in any of the effected nets/switches. So I would really like to know why I wasn't asked to reboot my server and why they didn't inform me ahead of time of their upgrading a bunch of switches which could cause my server to lose network connection?
