The database server on vis.nu has been shut down, and all connections are being forwarded to the new database server at the new location
To recap, at this point, mail is being saved on the new server and is active via NFS, and all database connections are being forwarded to the new MySQL server. The only remaining active services are shell and web, and movement of those services are underway.
Mail service will be shut down from 7 PM to 9 PM as I take a snapshot for migration to the new server in Washington. This includes all the mailing lists. I would have picked a better time but I’m starting to be under the gun.
Update 9:37 PM: I lied– I sometimes forget how long tarring up 10G of maildirs takes. I’m almost through it, but the largest accounts are still to compresss.
Update 1:08 AM: The compression portion is done, and the transfer is about 75% complete. After the untar, the system will be back up and running, but at somewhat reduced bandwidth until the transfer is complete. More on that later.
