We had 4 successful updates (out of 8)

w20-575-3, 5, 6 and 7 all updated normally.
w20-575-2 was powered down at 22:52 last night and thus missed its upgrade 
w20-575-1 and -4 both had stale logins.

I have reset 1, 2 and 4 and they should upgrade tonight.

quickstation-2 did not upgrade (or ping) and when I arrived at it, it was 
making a jet-engine sound and the display said "Unable to display this 
resolution" and it did not ping.  I power-cycled it, but video did not 
come back and after about 30 seconds it started making the jet engine 
sound again.  I swapped in the monitor from the machine next to it, with 
still no luck.  since I can't get video, I can't figure out what happened. 
If the kexec failed or caused the machine to lock up, power-cycling it 
should still have brought it up as Jaunty.  And if the kexec succeeded, it 
should have at least been pingable.

However, it's a GX620 so I don't know how much replacement we want to do. 
We may want to consider punting those quickstations (or moving them) as 
they get very little use.  I might poke at it some more this afternoon, 
but have left it powered off for now.
