Progress report for the server move, times are in CET, GMT+1:

9:50: Left EWD's house.
10:00: Left EWD's house again because we forgot something. :(
10:08: Picked up Ghostshaw.
10:17: Updated DNS entries to direct to new box.
10:32: Installing windows updates and stopped empty servers to avoid players joining who need to be kicked out soon anyway.
11:02: Arrived at first data center.
11:46: Collected the server; now driving to new data center.
12:20: Arrived at second data center; have to wait for the appointment, so lunch time.
13:43: On the way back; everything should be up and running like normal again.
14:14: Fixed load time issue with the website because the server status script. (60 seconds loading time is not really nice).

It's CET, our time. Sorry, that was unclear.

We're back home again :) Finished faster than expected :) DNS might need some time to update so if the server is unavailable then that's probably the cause.

With this server move, the different server IP adresses wouldn't happen to have changed, would they?

I can tell you the FS server IP changed, so the others probably have as well.

Yes, the IP has changed to 85.17.114.171.
I think that the FS server might be running on 85.17.114.172, as I think that is what I set in the config.

if you connect to something using xxx.blackintel.org, it will still work.  If you connect via the actual IP, you need to use the new one.
