[Ci-users] [Infra] - Pre-announced major outage for several services (please read)

I'm not sure I follow.

We definitely don't have to delete and re-deploy the virtual machines.

If a compute node is shut down properly (i.e, shutdown -h now), the virtual
machines will be soft shutdown - the kvm process isn't killed.
When the node boots back up, the VMs will be started again.
We /can/ shutdown the VMs prior to the maintenance for additional safety
but that also means they won't be powered back on automatically when the
compute node is back on.

As far as shutting down the whole cloud, there's nothing very specific
since we don't have anything HA. I would shut down the compute nodes first
and then the controller at the end.

@Brian, @David : are you ready for the openstack shutdown/power on
operation ?
What about Virtual Machines running on that openstack ? KB just told me
that openstack can't do basic things like "power off / power on"
previously deployed VMs, and that those have to be deleted and
redeployed. If so, are you ready for those slaves agents running on such
VMs ?
What's the procedure to stop/power off all the openstack nodes
