Migration of Linux Server - Date: Between Sep 16, 2017 to Sep 20, 2017
Posted by Javed Khamisani :: Allianz Hosting Support Desk on 16 September 2017 07:49 PM

As you know that we are experiencing some issue with one of our Linux server hence we have decided its migration to new Linux Server.

Migration Date: Between Sep 16, 2017 to Sep 20, 2017

Scope of Work: All users accounts/mailboxes/db's and package information would be copied to the new server during this process. All packages & settings would be copied and migrated as it is on the new server.

What we expect from you: If you are using our DNS/Name Servers then you don't have to worry about anything. If however you are using your own custom name servers then please follow the instructions given below carefully:

1) You'll have to renumber the IP address of website, FTP and mail DNS records associated with the domain you are running as custom name servers.

Old DNS Records are:
=========== A / A / A /

New DNS Records are:
=========== A A A

Thats it..beyond this you don't have to do anything.

Now when the DNS propagates all your sites would be pointed to the new server.

If you have any questions related to the migration, please open a support ticket with us by sending a mail to and we would be happy to assist you with.

Warm Regards

Team Allianz

Dear Customer

In order to provide you with better performance & more stable servers we would be upgrading our Current Windows 2008 Server OS to Windows 2012 R2 Web Server to heavy duty server with latest Intel Xeon CORE Processors & minimum 32 GB RAM Server.

Why the need of Migration ? : As a part of our Quality assurance policy we regularly upgrade our infrastructure to meet the Industry standards & to protect the servers from any possible sign of crashes / down times. Since hard drive of  the servers are mechanical devices hence we have a time frame of upgrading the hardware the moment it reaches its 3 years running phase. This servers have nearly completed their three years of operations and hence we feel its right time to move it to heavy duty servers which would not only improve the overall performance but also offer the latest hardware to meet the industry standards.

Server Specs:

Intel E 1240 3.3 Ghz with HT
32 GB Ram
1 X 128 GB SSD
1 X 1 TB HDD
1 X 2 TB HDD
Windows 2012 R2

Time / Schedule : Feb 06, from 2030 PST to 0300 Feb 07, 2016 (+5 MT)  (Apporx 6 Hours)

IMPACT :  All services would be down during the final migration of the server.  

Please free to contact us if you have any questions / queries in this regard.

Warm Regards,

Team Allianzhost
