What is the problem?
We need to failover the current s7 database primary master, to a newer host (T238044)
Technical tracking task for this maintenance: T238044
For this operation we need to set up the following wiki on read-only:
arwiki cawiki eswiki fawiki frwiktionary hewiki huwiki kowiki metawiki rowiki ukwiki viwiki
This also includes centralauth database, which means some operations might fail during the read-only period, such as: GlobalRenames, Changing/Confirming emails, logging into new wikis, password changes...
How can we help you?
We need to let users of the above wiki, that on Tue 26th November from 06:00 to 06:30 AM UTC that wiki will be on read-only. No writes will be allowed, reads will remain unaffected.
What does success look like?
Users will get notified and plan their work to avoid that maintenance window.
If everything goes fine, we expect the read-only window to last around 1-2 minutes, not 30.
What is your deadline?
We'd like to do this switchover by Tue 26th Nov at 06:00 AM UTC
