ivbalis.org server upgrade

The noble Order of the Knights of Jubal traces its origins back to the Year Two Thousand A.D., when a group of distinguished persons of good and true character, founded the order to promote chivalry and honour. The order takes its name from our leader, Alexander Jubal McRae, who on two (so far) occasions has been seriously injured, in one case fatally, defending an innocent woman from attackers.

ivbalis.org server upgrade

Postby Greg on Fri Sep 19, 2003 9:55 pm

Hi there!

The much discussed (and delayed) file server upgrade will be occurring on Saturday, September 27th and 9:30am (Australian Eastern Standard time). That's about 23:30 UCT.

At this stage, I don't know how long we will be offline, but it will probably be several hours. As we have to physically relocate the server to a different building and change ISP, as well as swap out motherboards and migrate data.

The services that will be affected are:
  • the http://www.ivbalis.org website
  • the ivbalis.org forums
  • the IRC server
  • any ivbalis.org e-mail addresses (including mine)


The Keenspot forums and Yahoo groups will, of course, be unaffected.

If you have any questions regarding this, please contact me here or by e-mail.

PIQE,
Sir Gregory of Melbourne

Further to my previous message, the server upgrade is good to go tomorrow.

That's the good news. The bad news is that the DSL link isn't. We're still waiting for the router to arrive.

My "partners-in-crime", as it were, are currently trying to organise a dial-up link or something to keep us on the air. If we are, that's great. If not, we'll be off the air until Tuesday or Wednesday.

The Keenspot forums will still be operational throughout, so if you need to contact me or to discuss this, post a message there.

PIQE,

OK - The router is finally arrived, it's in and (I'm told) configured properly. So now we just need to wait for the changes to propogate and we should be running any time now. Sorry for the delay.

For the technically or geek minded amongst us:

The server, plus a few others, sit on a permanent class C IP address. We've relocated it to another ISP and we're currently waiting for the BGP stuff to propogate the netblock routing info. I've no idea exactly how long that will take, but they tell me it won't be long.
