Time : 09.00PM GMT-0700 (Server Time)
Server Involved : 72.18.131.235 (Galaxy)
ETA : 4 Hours

Details:
--------

We will be upgrading the existing MSSQL 2000 server which is running on 72.18.131.235 (Galaxy) to MSSQL 2005 as the date/time scheduled above.

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. The server will be rebooted several times as per required to install all the necessary required applications to the server to support MSSQL 2005.

Maintenance effect:
----------------------

As the MSSQL server will be unavailable during the maintenance window, all client's hosted website which is using MSSQL 2000 Server (Galaxy:72.18.131.235) as the database connection string will be unavailable. We expect the entire upgrade path to complete in 4 Hours time.
