Server Maintenance Tonight

Recommended Posts

Greetings TCH Family,

 

Tonight we will be moving a few of the shared servers to a new rack. This move is for the installation of new power reboot bars. It was decided that instead of taking multiple servers down and replacing the power strips, we would move them a few feet one at a time. Downtime expected is between 10-20 Minutes per server as they are pulled over to the new rack and reconnected. We will begin around 1:00AM EDT. I will post in the individual server locations as well as here when they are being brought down.

 

The servers involved are:

Naboo

Endor

Bespin

Danuta

R2D2

Ossus

Tarvis

Dagobah

Coruscan

Kamino

Kalee

Yavin

Plavin

Applecore

Fresia

Just a side note, our DC Manager was not happy with the current power distro switches, so he talked me into buying $700.00 power strips. So much for his retirement plan. LOL

If only I had known this was coming out of my retirement fund beforehand....

 

Finishing up some last minute prep and then I will begin with the server moves.

While disconnecting R2D2 for the move, the power cord for Danuta came unplugged as well. Instead of bringing it back online and then down again, Danuta was moved simultaneously. Both servers are on their way back up.

R2D2 is back online.

 

I will need to move the power for the old network switch, which will cause the remaining servers to blip. This will take about a minutes and then we will begin with the remaining servers.

Naboo is currently performing an fsck and will be back online shortly.

 

I will be bringing down Dagobah to move while this completes.

Endor is going to be moved quickly to allow some extra room for maintenance. Should only take 5 minutes.
