There will be one last round of database downtime tonight at 9 pm Eastern Time. This time we'll be replacing the temporary motherboard we put in Friday with a permanent replacement.
It'll take about 30 minutes -- or probably less. Anyone who's built PC's knows how that goes. :) I've already got the CPU, fan, and RAM installed on the board already, so it's just a matter of pulling the machine out of the rack, swapping boards, hooking SCSI/PATA/USB/power LED/power switch/reset switch cables back up, going through and changing all the BIOS settings, etc. Nothing major. The OS boot scripts have already been edited.
It's at 9 pm so I'm not driving 80 miles back home at the wee hours of the morning.
This is the last expected downtime for the forseeable future. Last week's performance problems have been fixed.
