We're going to transfer EBT to a new server tonight.Transferring the database and doing the final checks will probably take an hour or so and EBT will be unavailable during that time. EBTForum is unaffected by this, it'll remain on the old server.

There's a new server in town, and we're going to do this again tonight. The transfer is scheduled to happen tonight at about 03:00 CEST.

I just transferred EBT to a new (temporary) server, sorry for the short notice.

If you notice something that stopped working tonight, please describe the problem in this topic. Thanks, and sorry for the downtime.

Looks like it's time for our annual server upgrade..

EBT will be transferred to a brand new Dell PowerEdge 2950 server on Friday 03:30 CEST. This process is scheduled to take about one hour -- migrating a 10GB database to a different server is going to take a while.

While I'm waiting for the database transfer to finish, I'm going to do some maintenance for the forum. Therefore the forum will also be unavailable for a while that night, although its downtime should be relatively short (15-20 minutes or so).

If you spot any unusual oddities with the new server, feel free to report them in this topic. Thanks.
