[Update 2008-03-11 21:00] The rolling restart is complete.
[Update 2008-03-11 18:02] Someone asked for the version numbers so you can tell if your region has been restarted or not:
- OLD: 188.8.131.52484
- NEW: 184.108.40.206992
Those don’t apply to the Havok4 Beta Server regions, which will be updated soon as well.
We have some bug fixes we need to push out to the servers that make up Second Life.
- Simulator crash which can be triggered via LSL
- Joining two parcels now consistently takes the properties of the larger parcel (previously it was a random selection)
- Fix for a server permission issue (the issue is already mitigated, but we want to deploy a more correct fix)
We plan on performing a rolling restart over the course of about 6 hours this evening, probably starting around 4pm PDT. This blog post will be updated with a specific time once we’re ready to begin, and will be updated throughout the roll.
As with all rolling restarts, the systems are updated in “sim” order. If you look at Help > About and see “You are … at sim5614.agni.lindenlab.com” that means the region you’re in is running on “sim5614”, which would be restarted (very roughly) about 9/10ths of the way through the roll based on the number of sims we currently have. Each region is given a 5 minute warning, then restarted, and the region should return within about 5 minutes.
