This announcement applies to customers with widomaker.com (or tni.net) e-mail accounts. Additionally, it applies to customers who use our Hosted SMB Enhanced Email service with their own domain name. This does not apply to customers using their own domain name with the Standard Email managed with the Plesk Control Panel.
We received the following notices from our email server provider regarding two upcoming emergency server maintenance periods:
On Sunday, November 26, 2017, one of our server providers will conduct maintenance on the underlying equipment providing several of our servers. Between 9:00am and 1:00pm, those servers may be shutdown and some services may be unavailable as the maintenance is performed. The maintenance will only affect the following services:
- E-mail accounts with addresses that end in widomaker.com or tni.net
- Widomaker’s home page (www.widomaker.com) and members’ page (home.widomaker.com)
Web and e-mail hosting accounts with their own domain name will not be affected. DSL Internet service will not be affected.
Apparently there was significant file system corruption following the previous Unscheduled Emergency Maintenance for wilma.widomaker.com, Friday, March 18 2016, 8:00 PM EDT.
This issue only effects users with an e-mail address that ends with @widomaker.com (or @tni.net).
Due to a drive failure, one of our servers, wilma.widomaker.com, will be shutdown for approximately 15 to 25 minutes, starting around 8:00PM ET, today, March 18th, 2016. During that time, some services, provided by that server, will be unavailable.
One of our servers (wilma.widomaker.com) will be migrated to a new platform. This will require shutting down the server for a brief time…
We have been informed by our data center, and server provider, that they will be performing maintenance on the nodes that several of our servers are using. This will require them to shut down several of our servers for a brief time.
Early this morning the Plesk6 virtual hosting server appeared to be under heavy load & responding slowly. We opened a trouble ticket with our data center and server provider to investigate.
The Plesk6 server was up and running properly again before 10:00am.
Our provider believes the underlying cause is hardware related. They have scheduled a service window tonight (10/1/2014), and early tomorrow morning (10/2/2014), during off peak hours, to migrate the Plesk6 server to different hardware. The migration is scheduled to start after midnight, tonight.
The server will be unavailable during the migration to new hardware. Because of the large amount of data that needs to be transferred, the migration may take several hours.
Widomaker has scheduled some planned downtime for, Sunday, August 25th, 2013, in order to perform maintenance and relocate several servers to a new data center. Click “Read the Rest of This Entry” for details and updates…
