Edit: the downtime did not happen, because i am still missing 2 disks. Once i got those disks i will set a new time.
I purchased Hardware for a new storage server. Unfortunately i could not afford enough harddisks to simply move all the data to the new server.
Because of this i will have to move one controller and all the harddisks on it to the new server and obviously i will have to shut down the server for this. Depending on when all my Hardware arrives the downtime will either be on the last weekend in April or the first weekend in May, i will specify this as soon as i know.
During the entire time there is also a chance that data access is slower then usual when i am transferring data to the new server, i do not think that it will have much impact on remote use but i am not certain.
There will be no changes for remote users of my systems after the update is done, the new server will only act as backend.
