Wiki Replica c1.labsdb to be rebooted Monday 2017-10-30 14:30 UTC

A tool you maintain is hosting data on labsdb1001.eqiad.wmnet (aka c1.labsdb). This server will be rebooted Monday 2017-10-30 at 14:30 UTC.

Normal usage of the *.labsdb databases should experience only limited interruption as DNS is changed to point to the labsdb1003.eqiad.wmnet (aka c3.labsdb). The c1.labsdb service name will not be updated however, so tools hardcoded to that service name will be interrupted until the reboot is complete.

There is a possibility of catastrophic hardware failure in this reboot. There will be no way to recover the server or the data it currently hosts if that happens. Tools that are hosting self-created data on c1.labsdb will lose that data if there is hardware failure. If you are unsure why your tool is hosting data on c1.labsdb, you can check the database and table names at

This reboot is an intermediate step before the complete shutdown of the server on Wednesday 2017-12-13. See Wiki Replica c1 and c3 shutdown for more information. --BryanDavis 00:20, 28 October 2017 (UTC)Reply

Removal of elevated wikitech rights

I have removed your check user, oversight, and administrator rights on wikitech on the assumption that they were granted in relation to your former role at the Foundation. I would be more than happy to discuss restoring these rights if you are interested in continuing to support operations on wikitech which require such rights. You can request these rights via a custom form on Phabricator.

I also took the liberty of updating your email address here and in the backing LDAP directory to point at your personal email account rather than your former address so that you could receive this message and other notifications related to your Wikimedia developer account. You can use the preferences here on wikitech to change the email address if desired. --BryanDavis (talk) 01:10, 17 February 2019 (UTC)Reply
