Scheduled MSSQL Upgrade - samuel-02.hostcentral.net 103.26.40.14

Dear Valued Customer,

Date: 30th Nov 2016
Time: 11.00 PM SGT+0800
 
Maintenance Details:
We will be upgrading current MSSQL version from current SQL 2014 to SQL 2016.

As part of the upgrade procedure requirement, the MSSQL services will be shut off from services in order for us to conduct a full offline backup of the databases.
 
Maintenance Affects:
1. During the upgrade, entire Microsoft SQL server will be stopped. This will cause service interruption to web sites which are using this server as MSSQL server.


2. IP will be switch from 103.26.40.14 to NEW IP 43.229.128.127, please adjust your database connection string accordingly.

 

We expect the entire upgrade to complete in 8 hours time.
