Server Maintenance Notice: [7:00 am - 7:15 am]

Post by Derrick »

We've had a couple operating system or hardware crashes over the last couple weeks, and they are increasing in frequency. These are either Blue-Screens, or more likely power supply overheats.

We are scheduling a chassis swap with the data center, and will advise when the maintenance has been scheduled.

Update: This has been scheduled for sat morning.

I only wish I lived closer so I could drive down there and do it myself.

Thanks for your support!

This has now been scheduled for sometime between 3:00 am and 6:59 am ET tonight (Sat morning).

As of now, the server could go down at any time between these hours. I've put in a request to have them do it at 7am sharp (i.e., after last save), but I'm not sure if that's going to be possible.

Will there be any advance warning before they take the server offline to work on it?

This is not a big deal but a bit of a heads up would be nice so I can log out safely and go to sleep.

There won't be any way to give notice before it goes down. I did just recive confirmation that they will start between 7am and 7:15am. Hopefully this will be after last save and before restart.

Expected downtime is about an hour.
