SFTP Maintenance 6/9/2021

Posted at 4:29 pm

Flywheel’s SFTP system will be undergoing maintenance as we run necessary updates on Wednesday (6/9/2021) starting at 9PM CDT lasting for 3 hours. Prior to the start of maintenance we ask that clients fully disconnect from Flywheel’s SFTP servers. During the maintenance, active SFTP sessions will be disconnected and new sessions will not successfully connect.

Flywheel teams will share status updates on this notice during the maintenance window.
