Posted by Tanuj C :: WIPL on 01 May 2015 06:10 PM
Dear Customers,
May 5, 2015 - 9:30 PM
MSSQL Services successfully migrated on new server.
We would be migrating our current MSSQL 2008 servers (Available with name MSSQL 2005 in WebsitePanel) to new Server (Windows 2008 / 2012) on May 5, 2015.
Server Name:
Why the need of Migration ? : After July 14, Microsoft will no longer issue security updates for any version of Windows Server 2003. As the current MSSQL 2008 Server is running on Windows 2003 Server hence we are forced to migrate our MSSQL Server to new server to protect our infrastructure. Kindly refer the following Microsoft url for the same:
Migration Description: During this time we will be migrating the mssql data to a new & powerful server with minimum 32 GB Ram and 8 Core Processing CPU's
Time: The Migration would start at Evening at 7.30 PM GMT 5.30 + (IST) time and would be completed by 11:30 PM.
Migration Date : May 05, 2015 (Tuesday)
Maintenance Impact: 
1. As a result of this move, you should expect the SQL Service to be down of the above noted maintenance windows. Actual amounts of downtime will vary that how fast the data gets copied on new server.
2. The MSSQL Server IP remains the same on new server hence you don't need to change the IP at any location / connection string of website. 
Communications Plan: Our helpdesk will be fully functional and staffed during the migrations. We will also be posting periodic updates in the announcements section to keep you fully informed of the status of all migrations. Please do not use our emergency contact numbers during the migration, as this will just slow our work.
We appreciate your business and will do everything in our power to minimize downtime while safely and securely moving servers.
Warm Regards,
