I'd like to initially move viewsic into a xen instance on this new server, since viewsic is nearly out of disk space and is the slowest of our existing 1U servers.

viewsic needs an infrastructure overhaul also, to switch it to suphp. A transition to new hardware would be a natural opportunity for this.

I could potentially work on the physical setup of this machine (and the remote power unit?) this coming Tuesday, if that works for you.

Next Tuesday (March 11) sounds good. What time works for you?

Also - what are the advantages to combining viewsic's move to new hardware with a suphp transition? They are both complicated tasks that to me would seem more manageable as separate projects.

I can start early in the day if you want. What if we get there at 9am Americas/New_York? I'm assuming we're just setting up hardware and making sure it's accessible, so we don't need to do any advisories for this part of the project.

The advantage of combining it is to create a single chunk of downtime for the users. But i think you've convinced me that it'd be better to divide up the projects and approach them independently. Thanks for the sanity check!

Does this server have a name? We should be using its name in this ticket.

9 AM sounds good to me.

How about naming it after Frederick Douglass? I've always wanted a server named fred.
