Mozilla Scheduled Downtime – 9/12/2006, 7pm – 10pm PDT (0200 – 0500 UTC)

We will have a scheduled downtime window this coming Tuesday from 7pm to 10pm PDT. The following changes will take place:

* 7pm PDT – Update firewall code. This is needed to address a few minor software issues. No expected downtime, but intermittent network connectivity is possible during the window.
* 7pm PDT – Intranet wiki migration. All internal wikis will be migrated to new database and app servers to improve performance and scalability. 30-60 min of downtime is expected but could extend through the window.
* 8pm PDT – developer.mozilla.org migration. D.m.o will be moved behind our caching loadbalancer farm to improve performance, scalability and reliability. No downtime is expected.
* 8pm PDT – Move mozilla.com mail to internal mail relays. Mozilla.com email will be re-routed to our internal mail relays (no end-user effect). No downtime is expected but delayed email is possible during the downtime window.

Please let me know if you have any reason why we should not proceed with the planned maintenance. As always, we aim to keep downtime to as little as possible, but unexpected complications can arise causing longer downtime periods than expected. All systems should be operational by the end of the maintenance window. Feel free to email infra@mozilla.org if you see issues past the planned downtime.
