Attached to Project— Dedicated servers
Modernization
all (dedicated servers)
CLOSED
100%
In order to improve general performance we are currently updating software versions used in multiple rescue-modes. This affects the rescue mode used on dedicated servers, as well as re-installation systems.

There should be no noticeable impact for customer servers during the transition.

The final tests have been conclusive, the changes are now being rolled out.

The rollout is complete.

The rescue systems are now based on the upcoming Debian version (7, codename "Wheezy") and bring amongst others the following improvements:
- Latest versions of system utilities and data recovery utils
- vmfs-tools: In allows mounting (read-only) of VMware ESXi 5.x datastores
- debootstrap: latest version allows manual installation of all currently existing Debian and Ubuntu-versions

The installation system is based on the same rescue systems and has amongst others the following improvements:
- newer version of parted which provides better alignment of partitions (for better performance)
- newest stable filesystem creation tools (for example for btrfs)

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you encounter any issues or see the need for additional utils.
