I'm going to be moving some services to ultra-sparc machines and changing the configuration of some things in an effort to resolve some host related problems. Inevitably this will involve some disruption but I will do my best to minimize it and keep it out of prime-time hours. The goal of these changes is to resolve some issues with unstable web services, slow pop-3 response in some cases, slow shell services, etc. The two areas where I have major concern, I am going to move the web servers to Ultrasparc system(s); this will cause incompatibility with compiled binaries, so some of you who have compiled cgi scripts, we may need to recompile them. If we have compiled C CGI programs for you in the past, please let me know so we can do this for you at the time the change is made. We are going to move the mail spool and servers off the machines they are presently on, the existing drive does not have the necessary thruput. This is going to require a rather lengthy copy during which mail will be inaccessible because of a need to keep the files static during the copy. Mail will not be lost but it will be delayed/inaccessible during the period when this is done.
