Emergency Server Deploy Tonight

Recommended Posts

We are doing an emergency server deploy to the entire grid tonight. This was unplanned, but warranted. I can post more details when we are finished. This will take most of the rest of the evening. This will affect all regions and all channels.

Milano, I'm sorry you weren't notified. I was not aware of this Concierge Channel and I apologize that it was not notified. I asked Concierge to look into it.

Oskar it is refreshing the hear you admit you did not know of the concierage agreement, apparently LL communiscates no better with you than with us, which is not your fault but says volumes about your superiors.  Some questions that it would be nice if you would address with equal candor.  One is this a rollback of all the restarts of the last two days and, if so will we be faced with another restart this morning.  Two what went wrong here it would seem to be a security issue, but even a security issue can be described in such a way that no vital information is given out.  Finally, how will this effect service and performance are we to expect more crashes and more inventory problems as seem to be indicated by the trouble I had loading inventory awhile ago.

 Please do not take this as a criticism of you but as a reflection of frustration at the arrorgance and utter lack of communication of Linden Lab as a whole and my growing doubts that sl is worth either the time or money people have invested in it.  As for your, your performance with the restarts has, after a rocky start due to the Linden blackout has been generally good, and if the rest of LL were up to your standard, things might be better off.

This was a security issue and on principle we only discuss them after they are patched. This was a patch to fix a content theft hole. Had we mentioned that before, then everyone who knew of the exploit would have worked like made to exploit it while it was still exploitable. It's happened before.

 

All seems well on the grid now and hopefully we can have a nice peaceful St Patricks Day and a weekend with no more security patches and no more rolling restarts. Next Tuesday/Wednesday will resume the regularly scheduled upgrades.

That is more than understandable and actually today's restart yielded some very unexpected bonuses in the behavior of beds and things that have been bugged for a good while now.  Hopefully eventually we will see a fix for the broken quicktime problem some of us are having as well. 

I am sure though after the pattern of rollbacks we have experienced over the last several months you can see why we would view a late night restart with a large degree of anxiety and suspicion.

It is good though to get a clear explanation and hope the hole is plugged for good.
