Hello Dallas Family,

I have some good news for everyone with sites on Dallas. We will be migrating your server into new hardware. Dallas has been and still is a great server, however we are moving into new hardware based on the servers age and the performance of the server over the past 60-90 days.

I am very confident that everyone will love their web sites new home. Faster, Faster , Faster!!! I think I have had to much coffee today. Did I say the new server is a much faster?

We will be moving accounts from Dallas to the new server starting at 11PM on 9.20.2011.

There will be NO IP ADDRESS changes required and no DNS modifications needed.

NOTE ON SERVER IP AND HOST NAME
I wanted to correct a miscommunication on my part concerning IP address changes during this migration. Since this is a completely new server and host name, all accounts WILL be getting a new IP address. However, we are rerouting the old IP address to the new server, so you still WILL NOT need to make any IP changes or DNS modifications from your end.

Old host name: dallas.tchmachines.com
New host name: orion.tchmachines.com
Old IP: 208.76.86.21
New IP: 208.76.84.200



We will be updating this page as we move along during the restore.

Looking forward to talking to everyone on Tuesday Night.

I really look forward to the family giving us feedback on performance of the new server and how our staff handled the migration.

Go TCH !

We have started the migration of the accounts to the new box. Currently at 1%. Please refrain from opening tickets till the move is reported as complete. As always we are here to help you with any problems that may arise.
I request all dallas clients for their patience during the migration. Updates will be posted here at regular intervals.

The restore is done, we are working on syncing the dns zones to the new IPs and the post restore stuffs. Sites should start resolving in a short while from now.

Restore is complete. The accounts are resolving fine from the new server.
If you are pointing DNS from external sources, make sure you update the IP to 208.76.84.200. Please make sure you clear the cache of your browser and flush your dns before posting a ticket if the account is still down.

Please make sure that you are subscribed to the ORION forum thread for updates regarding your server by clicking HERE

If you have questions or need assistance, please do not hesitate to post a ticket to our support desk (link on my signature and on the top menu). Thank you for your patience and your continued support.
