I have to change the IP address of one of the servers at the co-location facility. I plan on doing this around 1AM. Hopefully this will go smoothly and only a brief outage in mail access will result. But if something goes wrong and I have to drive over to the facility to fix it, it may take several hours. I plan to start this around 1AM this morning providing there are no other crises between now and then. Originally, I was going to use a new IP block at the co-lo facility and move a server at a time, but the interdependencies between servers made this impractical, so after this server was moved, I ended up moving the entire IP block to the co-lo facility. The result is that this one file server has an IP address in a different block than everything else resulting in all traffic between this server and other machines going through the router. Right now this is not a problem but as traffic scales up it may become a problem so I want to take care of it now.
