Date:  November 10, 2000

Time: 12:00 am to 6:00 am

Downtime: 30-60 minutes

The new Personal Control Panel 4.0 XL will be implemented on all UNIX servers. During this maintenance window, we will be shutting down PCP access. Techtrade will be converting one server at a time during this window, and we estimate that PCP service will be interrupted for approximately 30 minutes to 1 hour during this window.
Date: Thursday, October 5, 2000

Time: 1:00 am to 2:30 am

Services Affected: Aries

Downtime: 15-20 minutes

Purpose: We are receiving error reports on one hard drive. We will be replacing this hard drive during this maintenance window. We have completed a tape back-up as well as a mirrored hard-drive copy of all client data.

In the slight event that we experience difficulties during this maintenance window, we will be able to bring all client sites back up on a new server within the maintenance window time frame. Previously, less than 10 minutes of downtime was experienced.

Date: July 21, 2000

Time: 2:00 to 3:30 AM EST

Estimated downtime: less than 5 minutes

After several weeks of testing, we will implement our new Cisco 12012 Core2 Router. This router will be an addition to our current Core1 router so that we can run Hot Standby Routing Protocol (HSRP). This means that in the rare event that we have a router crash or if the Gigabit Ethernet uplink to a core router is disconnected, our network will remain up and running. We need to disconnect some DS-3 circuits and move them to the new 12000 series to complete the maintenance window.
Date: Tuesday, July 18, 2000

Time: 3:00 AM - 6:30 AM EST

Techtrade will have a maintenance window to convert our backup network to new 3524 switches. Our backup network is an internal network that controls all of our SQL server communications, which means that during this maintenance window you may experience interruption of service to your Personal Control Panel. 
Estimated downtime: less than 5 minutes per device
Date: Tuesday June 27, 2000 Hassan Shopping Cart v1.30a
The Hassan Shopping Cart v1.30a is now available for installation via your Personal Control Panel. Please keep in mind that this is only available as a fresh installation and if you are upgrading, it is recommended that you install this into a different directory then your current Shopping Cart and experiment with the configurations of your old data before using this cart with your live website.

Disk Usage
Disk Usage is now being updated daily via your Personal Control Panel, Telnet/SSH Shell and the Clients Area. 
Sunday June 18 - Friday 23, 2000 Some key personnel will be attending a specialists conference. Support replies will be a little slower than normal. Please bear with us and try to submit new accounts, relocations and domain name changes before Saturday June 17, 2000.
Date: Saturday June 10, 2000 New accounts set up Friday June 9 on the new Virgo server will experience a short delay as the Personal Control Panel needs to be reinstalled. A database administrator is working the problem. These accounts will be on line Sunday June 11, 2000. All existing accounts on Virgo, Aries, Gemini, Jupiter, and Venus work as normal and are not affected.

Time: 1:00  A.M. EST - 4:00 A.M. EST


During this maintenance window, we will be adding an additional UPS backup system to accommodate our recent growth.  Between 1:00 am and 4:00 am Techtrade will be powering down its internal servers, including our database server, for a period of less than 10 minutes while the power in the racks are switched from one UPS to another.

The following services may be affected:

1. Your Personal Control Panel will be unavailable (due to the fact that it relies on our database, which will be down)
2. Our primary DNS server will be down.  However, our secondary DNS server will be operational, so your website should still be served.
Date: Sunday April 16, 2000

Time: 2:00 A.M. EST - 4:00 A.M.

Total estimated downtime: 0 minutes
Scope of work:             

We will be switching over to a larger generator with an automatic start. During this maintenance window, there will most likely be no downtime.  In the event that the cutover does not go as planned, we will however power down the servers and bring them back up when the cutover is finished so that they do not have to do a file systems check. This is the reason for the two hour maintenance window.
DATE:  Thursday, March 30, 2000

TIME:  2:00 a.m. to 4:00 a.m. Eastern Time
Techtrade.com will be rebooting all the Sun E-250 servers.  Additionally, we will be rolling over our MCI/WorldCom DS-3 circuits to the new OC-12 ring.

All virtual server clients will be affected during this maintenance window.
September 14, 1999
The server Neptune was down for approximately 25 minutes unexpectedly on Tuesday, September 14, 1999 from 10:20 to 10:45 pm CT. This downtime was caused when new accounts were added. A problem occurred with a special character entered in the Domain Name order. The problem was found and resolved. A fix to the process was implemented which allowed this character to go through so this issue should not occur again in the future.
