The machine will be replaced. All accounts will be smoothly transferred over the new machine. Expected downtime: a few seconds per account. A final reboot of the new machine will then be done to make sure everything is OK, with an additional ~60 seconds downtime.
|08/03/2012 7:01 p.m.||
We're starting the operation.
Note: accounts will be migrated over the next few hours. A tiny HTTP downtime is expected (a few seconds), but SSH, FTP and WebDAV accesses will be unavailable for longer (until the whole server is migrated).
|08/03/2012 10:33 p.m.||
The migration is almost complete. We'll soon transfer the IP addresses over the new machine and finally reboot it.
|08/03/2012 10:44 p.m.||
A kernel crash during the reboot caused an unexpected HTTP downtime.
|08/03/2012 10:52 p.m.||
The hard reboot causes XFS to recover the disk.
|08/03/2012 11:02 p.m.||
Taking a lot of time, we're investigating.
|08/03/2012 11:20 p.m.||
Unfortunately, XFS is taking ages to mount (recover) the filesystem. It could take hours. We're still considering our options there.
|08/03/2012 11:26 p.m.||
The filesystem has mounted. We're making sure everything is OK.
|08/03/2012 11:37 p.m.||
SSH, FTP and WebDAV accesses are back. Everything seems to be working properly. We're still reviewing everything.
|08/03/2012 11:50 p.m.||
The migration is completed.
Needless to say, it didn't happen as expected, due to that final kernel crash. The HTTP downtime should not have exceeded a couple of minutes. We're very sorry about the inconvenience.
If your account is not working properly since the migration, please open a support ticket. We'll still need to schedule a reboot tomorrow night.
The frequent hardware issues with http7 over the last few months should now be history.
