Logins are open. Come on in!
[UPDATED 11 Dec 07, 1:57 pm PST]
We’re almost done. The support portal has been restored to service, and we’re aiming for a 2:30 pm opening.
[UPDATED 11 Dec 07, 12:35 pm PST]
From now until we re-open, access to the support portal may be problematic. What you get when you hit the page may vary between residents, but the bottom line is, support access isn’t reliable. This inconvenient behavior is part of the update work, and should clear up as we move into final testing.
[UPDATED 11 Dec 07, 11:45 pm PST]
The reversion is taking a bit more time than anticipated. Regrettably, we need to extend our projected downtime until 2 pm Pacific.
[UPDATED 11 Dec 07, 10:44 am PST]
We’re now projecting an additional hour of down time, with re-opening scheduled for noon PST. The bulk of the maintenance work has gone as planned. However, one component of the system update has failed validation testing and must be reverted. Once the reversion and validation retesting are complete, we’ll be ready to open logins again.
[UPDATED 11 Dec 07, 9:25 am PST]
The Second Life Beta Grid is now available. Happy testing!
[UPDATED 11 Dec 07, 8:43 am PST]
Land Store functionality is now restored. LindenX and other SL Website functionality should be up shortly. Grid update progress is going smoothly. Please check here for further updates. Thank you for your patience.
[UPDATED 11 Dec 07, 7:00 am PST]
Second Life Scheduled Maintenance has begun. Please check here for further updates. Thank you for your patience.
[UPDATED 11 Dec 07, 6:00 a.m. PST]
As part of the service outage, registration, LindeX, and the Land Store will be taken off line at 6:30 a.m. PST this morning, thirty minutes ahead of the other grid services.
[Originally posted 6 Dec, 3:30 PM Pacific]
Second Life will be unavailable on Tuesday, 11 December, from 7 a.m. until 11 a.m. PST. (That’s 3 p.m. – 7 p.m. GMT.)
The outage will include both Live and Preview (Beta) grids.
During the downtime, we’ll be upgrading some databases and adding asset storage capacity. No changes to simulator code are scheduled, and no new viewer will be required when service is restored.
We apologize for the short notice on this, especially during the approach of the holiday season. We would’ve greatly preferred to give this a little more lead time, but asset storage capacity in particular is something we need to address sooner rather than later.
