KVM14 Migration 8/10


Staff member

The interserver VPS hostnode KVM14 is being scheduled for a hardware migration on Monday 8/10 starting at 5 AM EDT. The server migration is due to the age of the server, os and legacy raid configuration. The system is being copied to a new centos 7 hostnode with hardware raid10 and raid1 cache cade (ssd write / read cache).

If possible the vm will have it state paused and saved saved so a restart is not needed at all. Those that can not will be shut down cleanly, one at a time, and copied to new hardware. The system will then start up automatically on the new hardware with the same ip and data.

The approx time to copy is between 10 and 15 minutes per VPS slice (25GB of data).

Changes may be needed before hand to ensure networking comes online.

If you use DHCP, our default set up, no changes are needed.

If you have a static IP configuration, and use the gateway, please change this to A static configuration would have been manually set after server set up and is not the default configuration. This change can be made now before the upgrade begins.
