[All Services] Short downtime to move servers...

Post by Sephiroth » Sun Oct 14, 2018 3:47 pm

Services Affected: Everything except website
Date: 2018-10-14 through 2018-10-14
Time: Approx 1900hrs EDT to 1930hrs EDT
Reason: The server room has been rearranged and I need to physically move the two servers. This will include disconnecting and reconnecting all cables (power, Ethernet, USB, etc) so I expect this to last about half an hour. When completed everything will be online again as normal.

I am pushing this back half an hour. Outdoor work kept me out too long.

Problem. My 8-port gigabit switch will not turn on. Power supply tested bad. It failed after seven years of constant uptime. I grabbed a 5-port gigabit switch and will be home soon to restore services. Sorry for the inconvenience.

TS3 is now online again. Took a while to locate but I had a brand new 5-port gigabit switch in hiding. As a bonus, I upgraded all connections to shielded Cat6. I found I had a bunch of STP Cat6 laying around too!
