Move some masters away from B6
Closed, ResolvedPublic


We just realised that we have all the codfw primary masters in the same rack, B6:

db2016 (can be decommissioned)
db2023 (can be decommissioned)

We would like to spread them across racks for obvious reasons :-)
This would be my proposal:

db2017 -> B8
db2028 -> A1
db2029 -> C5
db2023 -> D5 (can be decommissioned) - not needed
db2018 -> D8

@Papaul let me know if this doable

We may want to hold this, at least unless a switch is planned- hosts <db2030 will be decomissioned soon, so the masters will be failed over soon, probably.

@Marostegui Proposal approved.

Thanks @Papaul - let's leave this stalled for now. We will ping you if we decide to go for it :-)

Hi @Papaul

We are planning to switchover db2019, and we will promote db2051 to master which is in C6, but we'd like to move it to B8 for instance?
Could you let us know which day works for you to get it moved?

Hi @Marostegui

We can do this tomorrow with no problem.

Excellent, I will get the server ready by then, just to change the IP on it and power it off :)
Thanks a lot!

db2023 and db2016 aren't masters anymore, so they can be decommissioned.
We will create a decommission task when ready

@Marostegui Assigning this back to you . Just assign me the decommissioned task when ready.

Marostegui reassigned this task from Marostegui to jcrespo.

I believe with all the work @jcrespo has done switching over servers this is resolved

This will be handled on T184090, which is not ready yet for papaul (but will be soon).
