NTS: Please Don't Update Servers 1st Thing Monday Morning

By Manhattan Neighborhood Network
Note to Self: Please don't do server updates first thing Monday morning. After updating the Domain Controllers to the latest OS X, I noticed web pages were loading painfully slow(ly) most likely due to a dns issue, obv. For some reason the master dns server was turned off during the upgrade from 10.4.10 to 10.4.11 and everything was bouncing over to the slave server. Kind of a strange anomaly, but still not the kind of problem you want competing with your first cup of coffee on Monday morning. BTW if you have servers still running 10.4.10, you may want to upgrade since there are security issues. Also first thing this morning the MMN website schedule is off by an hour again. It looks like Ocean Se7en is still auto-adjusting twice a year for the old DST changes. So this means until Ocean Se7en goes away, DST changes have to be hand-coded 4 not 2 times a year. Once for each of the DST changes, and then adjusted again when O7 *thinks* the switch is supposed to occur. Did I mention I really dislike DST?
