The All Clear

Well from my standpoint it looks like the server relocation has been a success.

I did run into a little roadblock with the Xen kernel in CentOS not booting into single user mode. This of course made it a bit difficult to boot the system so that I could modify the network settings for the new location since network based services like sendmail or httpd would slow-down and/or freeze the boot process with improper network settings. So minus single user mode where I could bypass all, but the most necessary services (sort of like Window's Safe-Mode), I had to use the interactive mode during the boot process to individually enable/disable services. That did the trick, but slowed me down quite a bit determining which services would freeze.

But the good news is the server has been installed, is running and DNS looks to be point everyone in the right direction. Not that anyone probably noticed, since all the while Google's Gmail was down for the count.
