Maintenance on all shell servers is completed. All are in service.
OpenSuse is completed, Fedora is going down for Imaging, and Zorin is in progress.
OpenSuse and Zorin are going down to be imaged (a form of backups). This will take approximately 1/2 hour for OpenSuse and approximately 2 hours for Zorin.
MySQL stopped responding and so I did myisamchk on all the databases and restarted. This has not happened in years and I do not know the cause at this point.
This evening the shell servers zorin.eskimo.com and mxlinux.eskimo.com will be taken out of service for imaging. Zorin will require approximately two hours and mxlinux about one half hour.
All disk repartitioning has been completed. All servers are back in service.
The following servers will be going down around Midnight for approximately 4 hours to repartition the RAID array to make more space available for backups.
MxLinux, Zorin, Xeno, Minecraft, vps1, vps2, and vps4.
And yes, at the request of several customers, I am working on a Minecraft server.
I’ve revised the time because the move of this partition is taking longer than I had expected.
Maintenance work on virtual private servers is completed.
Maintenance is still in progress on Zorin, MxLinux, Mint, Centos7, Fedora, and Opensuse. Work on the remaining servers has been concluded.
All work requiring downtime of the web or mail has been completed. Work on the physical hosts has been completed. Work is still in progress on the shell servers and virtual private servers.
X2Go is fixed on Mint. The apt-add-repository ppa:x2go/stable repository creates a .list file containing the xenial repository which makes sense as Mint 18.3 is still based upon Ubuntu xenial, but the xenial repository does not work, neither does yakkety or zesty although x2go will install from these. Finally I tried artful, x2go both installs and functions under Mint 18.3 if you use this repository so it is again operational.
