CA2 (SSD Node), was nearly under full usage, so we decided it was time to move. The new server has double the ram, and twice the CPU cores.

Process

August 10

  • 11:44 am Migration started to the new node. Each VPS was down for this time, but restored as the migration finished.
  • 4:47 pm Migration completed, but IP’s needed to be transfered manually.

August 11

  • All VPS’s were online but the IP was different.
  • No IP’s transfered due to inaccessability to the internet by staff.

August 12

  • 1:43 pm IP migration started, this took a while as each IP required 4 steps to move, and this was done manually.
  • 4:20 pm IP migration finished.
