Update 2008-06-11 05:06 : Last night’s pilot roll went quickly and quietly. Today’s rolling restart of 1/2 of the grid will begin in a few moments.
This week we will be deploying server version 1.22.3 to Second Life. This version fixes the bugs with group permissions and object rezzing that were introduced last week. It fixes the issues describved in SVC-2489, SVC-2495, and SVC-2499. This server version is already on the “Second Life Beta Server” channel of the preview grid, where you may try it out now; see the previous blog post for more information.
The rolling restart will follow the schedule:
- Tuesday, 06/10, 7:30 PM : a pilot roll to ~160 regions
- Wednesday, 06/11, 5:00-9:00 AM : a rolling restart of half of the grid
- Thursday, 06/12, 5:00-9:00 AM : a rolling restart of the remaining regions on the grid
As with all of our current rolling restarts, no client updates will be necessary. All regions will receive a 5-minute warning before they are restarted; there is no way for you to delay your region’s restart. Each region should only be down for less than 10 minutes. If your region stays down for more than 30 minutes, please contact support. We do not anticipate that we will have the same problem we had last week with regions staying down sometimes for an hour or two, as the problem that caused that was fixed with last week’s rolling restart.
Update 2008-06-10 14:04: in addition to the group permissions fix, two small bugs that allowed for a sim crashing exploit are fixed in this release.
