• Subject: *** ADMIN: possible downtime and mail disruption

Folks:

In the very near future I'm going to attempt an upgrade of the mail system 
to a new version of Linux ... this will certainly cause some downtime and 
could possibly cause some disruption in the mail processing.

I will endeavor to minimize the disruption, but please do not be surprised 
if there are problems.

If a message does not show up on the list in a reasonable amount of time 
(24-48 hours) simply re post it.

If there is an extended outage (very unlikely) status reports will be 
posted to http://www.midrange.com.

My current plan is to implement the change tomorrow (Sunday, 1/30).

For those who are interested: I'm currently running Slackware 3.6 (very 
old) and want to upgrade to Redhat 6.1.  The slackware system is 
extraordinarily unstable  and I want to implement some things that require 
a lot more stability.

I'm currently configuring the RH install on a spare hard IDE HD (in another 
computer) and will simply replace the SCSI drive the OS is now running on 
with the new drive.

All list data resides on a separate drive, so recovery of the system will 
simply putting the SCSI drive back.

David
