host895.rimuhosting.com hardware upgrade

PostedMon, 20 Aug 2018 00:29 AM UTC
Last UpdateMon, 20 Aug 2018 00:29 AM UTC (25 hours ago)
StatusOpen
Affected Serverhost895.rimuhosting.com

Host895 is an older host server in Dallas.  It has some older drives and we are seeing some drive warning messages.

To improve this we will move VMs on these hosts to newer hardware with some urgency.  Where possible we will upgrade them to SSD storage and in some cases we can increase the memory allocated to the VMs.

The moves will be automated.  We will stop the VM.  Move the disk image to the new hardware (this takes a minute or two per GB of data).  Then restart the VM.  There will be no IP address change.  No action is required by you if your server typically starts up fine after a move.

The moves will occur after UTC Tue 21 Aug 0100 (= Dallas Mon 20 Aug 2000)

Server rack moves

PostedSat, 21 Jul 2018 06:49 AM UTC
Last UpdateTue, 24 Jul 2018 23:16 PM UTC (27 days ago)
StatusClosed
Affected Servershost1369.rimuhosting.com , host1385.rimuhosting.com

Tue, 24 Jul 2018 22:41 PM UTC: Both servers are back online and VPSs restarted. If you are not able to connect please open a support ticket and let us know.

Tue, 24 Jul 2018 21:13 PM UTC: A reminder this work is are set to start shortly (on time).

host1385and host1369 are in a cabinet that is scheduled to be decommissioned. Before that happens we need to physically move both servers to an adjacent cabinet. Additionally we will be shortening the network path to both servers which will enhance networking stability.

All VPSs on those hosts will be stopped while the work is carried out. We anticipate no more than 2 hours down while that is completed and the VPSs come back online fully. We are taking every care to minimise that time, so it may be much less.

The window will start at 10pm UTC (2400 Frankfurt time) on Tuesday 24th July
