Just a reminder the PGPViewer will be at risk tomorrow morning (Thursday Aug 29). The at risk period will begin at 8am BST and last until roughly 9am BST. During this time, maintenance and a transition of the system to a new server will occur. This may limit and/or shutdown much of the PGPViewer services.
Any questions and concerns, please let me know.
Since the entire Sanger farm system infrastructure has been at risk or down the last two weeks, it might be the perfect time to join the fun. The machine that houses the PGPviewer databases is due for a migration/upgrade to a new machine. Much of the work has already been completed so whats left is some minor changes to the code to point to the new location and the flipping of the switch.
Because of this, I propose to have this switchover this Friday morning around 11'ish GMT. I don't expect any issues and it should be seamless, but just in case its good to let you know.
For GRIT'ers: I chose this date, because it appears on the calendar that many people will be away, so disruptions should be kept at a minimal.
If you have any issues with this date/time let me know, otherwise I will liase with DBA and the Networking team so they can handle the switchover.
