...and right after I sent this mail, I rebooted the new server once more before starting the maintenance. But suddenly it refused to come back up, or even reinstall. Likely the server has hardware issues.

Therefore the maintenance is canceled for today, until we've figured out what the problem is. The migration will probably happen next week, possibly using different hardware.
