The “elzar” Web server will be restarted at 10 PM Pacific time tonight (February 25). This will cause a five-minute interruption of Web and e-mail service for customers on that server.
Other servers will not be affected, and incoming mail will only be delayed, not lost.
This restart is necessary to fix a memory problem. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Update 10:03 PM: The maintenance was completed with less than 3 minutes downtime.
At approximately 11:00 PM Pacific time on Friday, April 3, the “flexo”, “mom” and “elzar” servers will be restarted. As a result, Web site and e-mail service for some customers will be unavailable for approximately five minutes.
No e-mail will be lost, of course; incoming mail will just be slightly delayed.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. This maintenance is necessary to install an updated “kernel” on our servers, as described in an earlier post.
Update: We’re also going to include the “zapp” server in this maintenance to replace a disk in the RAID array.
Update 2: The maintenance was completed with less than five minutes of “downtime”.
At 11:00 PM Pacific time tonight (November 24), the “elzar” and “farnsworth” servers will be restarted. As a result, Web sites and e-mail service for customers using those servers will be unavailable for approximately five minutes.
