Sever upgrade/maintenance (Saturday, 23 May 2009)

Posted on 21 May 2009 by EvilWhiteDragon
As you might have read, we are going to upgrade our server to have a Core 2 Quad instead of a Core 2 Duo. Our current Core 2 Duo E4300 (1.8 GHz) to a Core 2 Quad Q6700 (2,66 GHz).
We are also going to add in a "new" used 400 GB disk for more storage and try to get an old SCSI disk back to work so that we will once again have three SCSI disks.
This maintenance is planned for Saturday, 23 May 2009.

We are leaving at 9 AM CEST from our parents' houses, to arrive at 10 AM at the shop which sells the CPU. We expect to arrive at the data center by 11:30 AM, at which we will shut the server down and start the maintenance. We do not know when it will be done, but expect at least a few hours downtime. If we run into unforeseen problems, it may happen that we will be unable to complete maintenance on Saturday, in which case it will remain down until Sunday.

We will post live updates at TheKOSs2 forums!
