Server Upgrade

Post  sparticvs on Thu Jan 12, 2012 3:56 am

<UPDATE>
The update will take place on Tuesday between 11am-3pm (GMT-5)
</UPDATE>

Hello everyone. I wanted to notify everyone of an upgrade that will take place in the next couple days here. I have ordered more memory for the server that the minecraft vm is running on, which will result in downtime. Consider this scheduled downtime. This downtime should be no longer than 30 minutes but may take upto an hour. I do not have an exact date at this time, but I will be sure to notify everyone atleast an hour prior to it taking place. During that time the Distantlands wiki will be unavailable as will the game server.

-- PS: Trei, sticky this if you would and remove my other post from sticky, thankssssssss

Software maintenance is not my domain. I deal strictly with the hardware and the network routing. For questions pertaining to server version, consult EtherealPanda.

Will do! I am monitoring the situation closely and will have panda post when the server is functional again.

Summary of the Tasks tonight
  1. Suspend all VMs to Disk
  2. Shutdown the VM domain controller
  3. Notify NOC that ready for rack pull
  4. Await notification from the NOC team that hardware is booting
  5. Notify Panda to safely shutdown the resumed VM
  6. Upgrade the memory capacity of the VM
  7. Upgrade the disk capacity of the VM
  8. Start the VM
  9. Have Panda connect and Confirm status
  10. Await for Panda's all-clear on server being fully functional again


Objective complete. Server Upgraded. Thank you all for your patience and cooperation. I couldn't be happier at the time it took to do all the work, it was all done in under 1 hour which was the original total window. The benefits of this upgrade are huge, this should resolve some latency issues as well.
