Just a heads up (kinda late) that Voxrox/Voxel are having scheduled downtime this evening from 1AM to 4AM as they move servers from the LGA1 facility to the new LGA2 facility. Just thought I'd start a thread, as I've already shut down my servers, and will be patiently waiting to watch them come back up in the new facility.
From the email they sent out to all customers:
Your equipment will be moved on Saturday morning from the hours of 1 AM to 4 AM EST and you should power down the equipment Saturday morning before 1 AM.
NOTE: This maintenance window only affects equipment located at our 25 Broadway (Telehouse) facility and will not impact customers located at our Parsippany, NJ location or other network facilities.
I've noticed that you can log into ubersmith, and under devices, it'll list if your device is in LGA or another facility.
This outage has now lasted 6 hours (not the annouced three hours), I was told at 5:25 the information that was only posted at status.swishzone.com 2.5 hours later, that the server had all been moved, and everything would be plugged in.
I'm sure it's been a long night for Voxel - I have done a few of those myself in my time. These days I usually find I don't get into that sort of situation, because I'm good at project management as well as being technically proficient.
This downtime has been ridiculous. I have two servers. One apparently is online, but tracing it reveals it is still located at LGA1, the voxel tech told me they were false or inaccurate. the second one is nowhere to be found. Multiple calls after 3pm go unanswered. It has been at least 18 hours of total downtime. I'm very sad.
