Tonight, at midnight, we will reboot one of our DHCP servers that handles legacy DSL customers terminated in San Francisco onto a new kernel. The server should be down for only a few minutes and little to no interruption of services should occur for the 2,700 affected customers. This update will resolve a problem with an Ethernet transceiver lockup affecting one of the servers redundant uplinks.
Update Wed Mar 6 00:14:32 PST 2013, maintenance complete. Total downtime for the server was less that 5 minutes.
