The KVM254 server requires a hardware migration, which includes data copied to a new server. This has been scheduled to occur Wed 9/21 starting at 5AM edt when the server load is lowest. 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). Important: 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 18.104.22.168, please change this to 22.214.171.124. 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.
