Why are we proceeding with this change?

Upgrading our database will allow us to benefit from the latest performance improvements.
This upgrade will allow us to reduce future downtime required for database maintenance.

Is there anything I must do in regard to this maintenance?

Although it’s not required, we recommend that you stop your automation scripts prior to the maintenance. No other action is required on your side.

After the maintenance Shotgun should work as before, and no changes to your scripts, tools, or Shotgun pages will be required.

Where can I follow the progress of the operation?
