Planned outage 03/02/10 7:30-8:30 - completed

Post by Xaccers » 03 Feb 2010, 19:58

I'm going to move the servers back to the more powerful machine at 7:30.
Hopefully there won't be much of an outage.
I'll need to use the maintenance page for a while before hand and take a backup of the database.
It will be quicker that way, as rather than copying the virtual server file across (20GB, approx 30 minutes to copy)
Instead I can back up the database, compress and copy that (tens of MB) then restore it and have us back up before you can say Jack Robbinson :)
Well, that's the theory.
First step is to get the domain controller back up and running on the main machine, and then move the groups that I moved out, back into the Users OU.
