Need to start planning.
I'd like to schedule this for Jan 2'nd. Will look at the list of mounts and will let folks know what will be impacted.
have we really been trying to plan this for 6 months...? wow.
Date's confirmed, will educating around downtime.
In this downtime, approx how long will you need for the netapp upgrades? (Whatever time is needed is fine; I ask because I'm trying to calc how long the overall tree closure will need to be. RelEng will need to keep the trees closed for a couple of hours afterward netapp work is done, while we spin all build/test/perf systems back up to speed.)
We would like a 3 hour window (from start to stop), before we declare the exports and iscsi shares to be functional. So the downtime starts at 2:00 PM, we should be done by 5:00 PM. Does that answer your question? If you need more information, let me know.
The IT upgrade work completed on schedule by 5pm. I'm now verifying RelEng systems are ok before reopening tree.
vm's should be back online. let me know if i missed anything.
