Outage - Firewall replacement

Postby crzykidd » Sat Apr 09, 2011 1:22 am

There will be 2 short 5-10 minute outages tomorrow.

First I will be moving the cache servers to the new firewall. During this time images and the API will be down. This move should take no more than 5 minutes.

After we run with that for a bit and everything looks like it is running well I will be moving the main www site behind the new firewall, again about a 5 minute outage.

I will post back to the forums in the morning before I start this work, just wanted to give everyone a heads up.

Thanks,
Crzy.

I will be starting this work shortly. At the most there may be a couple of short outages throughout the day. At most each one should be 5-10 minutes.

Ok Cache servers are moved over, since I have 2 it was easy to prevent much down time.

Moving the main website is going to take me about 15 minutes of down time. Just no way to get everything moved over without it. I will be starting this work shortly. Sorry for any interuptions.

Ok the hard part is done. There may be a couple more very short 30 second outages the rest of the day as I tune the firewall.

Thanks everyone.

I can't seem to reach the main page atm: http://thetvdb.com/

Might be some teething issues to work out still.
