Fallback is: cable up the old 1GB nic (Chris has done this and set up the port), PXE install on that, move to 10gb NIC once we're back up.  Gross but it gets the job done.

Set for tomorrow (Friday) 1 to 4 pm UTC, this time should be much smoother. Same caveats apply as before.

PXE boot from non-embedded nic failed spectacularly despite our best efforts.  This means we'll have to schedule another window once we have someting new to try. I apologize for the extra inconvenience.  All services are back exactly the way they were.

Extending this downtime window because we ran into unexpected issues with PXE boot.

Dataset1001, the host which serves dumps and other datasets to the public, as well as providing access to various datasets directly on stats100x, will be unavailable tomorrow for an upgrade to jessie.  While I don't expect to need nearly 3 hours for the upgrade, better safe than sorry. In the meantime all files will be accessible via ms1001.wikimedia.org via the web, and all dumps and page view files from our mirrors as well.

Thanks for your understanding.
