By in large the Sunday night move went well, although some unanticipated issues
arose with the POP server which took an extra 60 or so minutes to fix. The new
system was available at about 11:15 pm Sunday evening

The support situation is as follows:

It seems that some passwords didnt copy through 
correctly, we believe this to be due to differnet 
interpretations of the special characters (!,$), or a buggy copy  in 
particular passwords. Changing them back has resolved 
that issue. The other support event were lots of 
technically incorrect POP server settings like, 
dcn.davis.ca.us, dcn.org, or pop.dcn.org. 

On the web server side some of the old cgi-bin directories and  
their symbolic links didnt work properly on the new 
system and had to be fixed on the fly throughout the 
day. FTP services have stopped for today and will be 
restored tomorrow.

Im sure we will be handling support calls over the week but considering what
could have gone wrong, Im able to deal with that.

As far as performance goes the max system load avg has 
been 0.04, cpu got to about 3%, no SWAP is being used, 
RAM is handling everything. Its orders of magnitude 

What remains to be moved are Virtual host web sites, 
RADIUS dialup authentication, and some minor admin 
material needs updating. Then we will be on to 
enhanced services after we monitor the current system 
for a period of time for any issues
