Who are you?
Since you use this wiki to send official communications of sort, it's appropriate to introduce yourself on your user page. You can learn about user pages on mw:Help:User page, but don't be afraid of asking. For now, I added a link to what I believe is your identity. Nemo 08:13, 31 October 2016 (UTC)
Wiki Replica c1.labsdb to be rebooted Monday 2017-10-30 14:30 UTC
A tool you maintain is hosting data on labsdb1001.eqiad.wmnet (aka c1.labsdb). This server will be rebooted Monday 2017-10-30 at 14:30 UTC.
Normal usage of the *.labsdb databases should experience only limited interruption as DNS is changed to point to the labsdb1003.eqiad.wmnet (aka c3.labsdb). The c1.labsdb service name will not be updated however, so tools hardcoded to that service name will be interrupted until the reboot is complete.
There is a possibility of catastrophic hardware failure in this reboot. There will be no way to recover the server or the data it currently hosts if that happens. Tools that are hosting self-created data on c1.labsdb will lose that data if there is hardware failure. If you are unsure why your tool is hosting data on c1.labsdb, you can check the database and table names at https://tools.wmflabs.org/tool-db-usage/.
This reboot is an intermediate step before the complete shutdown of the server on Wednesday 2017-12-13. See Wiki Replica c1 and c3 shutdown for more information. --BryanDavis 00:19, 28 October 2017 (UTC)
