Time : 1.42PM (GMT +8:00)

We have some slight delays in starting the work for 30 minutes from the announcement time as of some unexpected hardware issues. We have successfully migrated the data over at 1.40PM and a reboot is undergo in order for us to switch to the new hard disk.

Additionally to that, we have also seen some errors generated on the /home2 hard disk which stores the user's files. We will be transferring the data over to the new drive as well upon the server reboot. We expect it will takes a bit longer ( 1 hours ) for this as /home2 have all the web files uploaded here. We will be stopping all the services during this time in order to make sure all the files transfer over are up-to-date. We will start the /home2 transfer at 2.10PM.
