Planned maintenance 19 – 20 Feb 2018

The NorthSeaWeather webserver will have a full hardware upgrade while being re-located to our server administrators new Data Centre.

Synchronization of data between the servers will commence around 2000UTC on Monday 19th.
Once the old and new servers are synchronized there will be a period of downtime as network re-configuration is carried out. There may be delays in the forecast updates after syncronization commences and the completion of the network switchover. It is advisable that users retain a printed version of the 1800UTC forecast isue as backup during this time.

If network administrators encounter any problems during the switchover we will keep you informed via our facebook or wordpress blog and Twitter account. We will inform you once the transfer has been completed and operations return to normal.
Thank you for your cooperation and patience.
Best regards

Hello All

The Bunker Data Centre will be undertaking critical core network
maintenance tomorrow morning around 0600.

This has the potential to affect North Sea Weather site connectivity and
forecast updates which occur around this time in the morning. While we hope
that there will be no noticeable impact there could be a loss of
connectivity for several minutes, and a delay in the morning updates.

We thank you for your patience and understanding during this maintenance
