Maintenance Tonight

     Tonight I’ll be installing a shelf and an upgraded server in the co-location cabinet.  Hopefully this will not disrupt any existing services.  I’ve got the wiring strapped down now so the chances of accidentally unplugging something are significantly reduced.

     I do have to move the connection to the co-lo providers router to a different jack which hopefully will eliminate problems with an existing flaky jack and this will interrupt service briefly.

     When the new server is operational, I will be moving some of the existing guest machines to it.  This will cause some interruptions but these are mostly little used shell servers like opensuse so it should not be too disruptive.

     Since I will be at the co-location facility and not here, I won’t be able to answer the phone live.  If you do encounter a problem please either use the Support -> Tickets ticket system or leave a voice mail.
