11:50 p.m. update - The following tasks are progressing:

  • IP addresses moved from Dallas to Minneapolis.
  • Final data sync completed. 
  • The servers in Minneapolis are now coming back online. 

11 p.m. update - The following tasks are progressing

10 p.m. - The migration process has started. 

9 p.m. - Preparations are underway for the migration.  We expect servers to begin shutting down at 10 p.m.


The following is a detailed description of special activities scheduled during this Sunday's weekly maintenance period.  
Updates will be visible on this page and post starting Sunday night. 


What we are doing:

We are migrating all services, servers, and IP addresses from the Dallas facility to our main hosting facility in Minneapolis, MN.

 

When are we doing it:

The migration is scheduled for Sunday, September 8 at 9 p.m. (US-CST).  

 

What can you expect:

Starting at 9 p.m. (US-CST), hosted services in Dallas will be shut down and inaccessible. At that time we will be migrating the Dallas IP address ranges to Minneapolis. We will also be doing a final data sync and will bring the servers online in Minneapolis at the same time.  We anticipate the entire migration to be complete by 1 a.m. (US-CST) Monday September 9 (4 Hours).

 

How we are doing it:

Since early June we have been performing server replication from Dallas to Minneapolis using our replication software once daily. We have confirmed system integrity by booting and spot checking replicated servers in the Minneapolis data center.  This week we have increased replication frequency to twice daily.  On Saturday morning, September 8, we will increase replication to hourly to minimize the amount of changed data to be moved at the time of final migration. At 9 p.m. Sunday night  we will bring down the Dallas servers and perform a final replication. At that time the IP addresses will also be moving from Dallas to Minneapolis. When the final replication completes, the replicated servers will be brought online in Minneapolis. We will keep the servers in Dallas until the hard shutdown date on October 1 in case of any unforeseen issues. 


No configuration changes are required by any of the customers after the migration has completed.  


What should I do if there’s an issue after 1 a.m. Monday, September 9th?

Cazarin and the hosting service center will both have telephone service available during the migration and after the migration is complete.
