We are now starting the Windows 2003 to Windows 2012 migration for a few servers per the email we previously sent. As noted in the email, please allow 30 minutes for this migration process to be completed.
We are researching intermittent slowness affecting some servers and will post further information here once we have more detail.
Update: The intermittent slowness affecting some servers has been resolved. We were able to trace down the root cause and are putting extra measures in place to prevent this specific issue from happening again.
Just after 2300 (Central Time Zone) there will be a brief loss in connectivity, in two separate events, as we perform maintenance on our public facing switching infrastructure. These events are expected to cause a loss of connectivity for approximately 60 seconds in each event. This status will be updated when maintenance has completed.
We have received contact from our uplink provider. Cogent is performing maintenance tonight on back-bone fiber in the greater St. Louis area to upgrade to newer, faster hardware. We were not notified of this window, and are working with our upstream provider to find out where the disconnect took place. We strive to keep you informed of planned maintenance, and apologize for the inconvenience. Internal processes and services inside Hostek were not effected, but if you are still experiencing issues, please contact support at [email protected]
Tonight, a brief outage occurred that effected our St. Louis Public connectivity for approximately 10 minutes just before 0100 Central Time. The System Administration team was notified, and the issue was pinpointed to one of our upstream providers, Cogent. This outage occurred outside of our Datacenter, and we are working with Cogent on the particulars of the outage. Internal processes and servers were unaffected.
