I'm working through ssh on a remote machine running Ubuntu 12.04.2 that I use to run a lot of simulations.
The administrator of this machine has installed the last updates and the machine requires a reboot now. At the moment I'm the only user of that machine and I asked the administrator to reboot it since I'm not running simulations in these days, but even after a lot of solicitations he seems doesn't want to reboot it (he simply doesn't reply to my mails ).
I cannot reboot it by myself since to connect that machine to the local network I need his credentials.
So it's a week that the machine is running with a warning message saying a reboot is required.
Are there problems if I continue to use that machine without rebooting it?
Thanks a lot.
