DreamHost: Emergency Network Maintenance on Sub5 Mail Cluster – July 26th, 5PM PDT (4 hours) (RESOLVED)

This Tuesday July 26th, our network engineering team will be performing an emergency maintenance on a switch in our Sub5 mail cluster in order to restore optimal performance. This is a 4 hour maintenance, and will require approximately 1 to 2 minutes of downtime in order to complete. Any mail sent during this maintenance window will not be affected, however there is a small chance of mail bouncing if you send or receive any emails during the uplink transition from the old to new switch. All mail sent throughout the rest of the maintenance will be delivered, but there may be delays. To determine if your mail is handled on the above sub-cluster, please click on the Data Centers page in your DreamHost web panel. We will update this post with new information as it becomes available.

If you have any issues unrelated to this maintenance please contact support from your web panel.

UPDATE July 26, 2016 5:47 PM PDT: Our admins have finished the maintenance and everything appears to be working successfully. We will continue to monitor the situation in case of any problems.  Thank you for your patience during this maintenance.

UPDATE July 26, 2016 5:29 PM PDT: Our admins have finished the moves between switches.

UPDATE July 26, 2016 5:08 PM PDT: Our admins are beginning the move from one switch to another.  There may be 1 to 2 minutes of downtime during this operation.
