  • Schedule Downtime on Friday, June 18

    The following from our server hardware&network provider, Ev1Servers:

    After an extensive review of our entire power supply and distribution system after the damage on Saturday we have found one PDU (Power distribution unit), the equipment that sits between the UPS and client servers, that needs significant repair and/or replacement. The parts required, including a cold spare, are on site and standing by.

    Though this unit is still functioning, initial evaluations and scans indicate that it is not operating within acceptable parameters. We feel that there is a greater risk by NOT doing the maintenance and/or replacement as soon as possible. Being in control of the process (being proactive) would be much better than being reactive in an emergency situation.


    This means that on Friday, June 18 at around 02:00 Apolyton Time (07:00 GMT) Settler II will go offline. According to Ev1Servers the estimated duration of the downtime will be 2 hours.

    Additional downtime will occur on Saturday morning (GMT) for our own check-up after last weekend's incident and regular maintainance.

    Apologies in advance for the lack of service.

              Settler II should be connected to a generator or something if the power fails.

                How comes that there are so many problems with the server? Is poly.net really asking that much from the server?

                  2 hours downtime, I hope that's it, first thing for me (for a proper day) start with Polly............

                  But I agree with them, better now a bit of downtime, than later couple of ours

                    I'm on my way to last "schoolday" then, to get my grades and such, so no worry...

                    Now, on saturday morning(that'll be poly time I guess?), it'll be midday here, that's more of a problem...

                      Poly has gone ages without a problem. If two hours downtime is the price to pay for it not crashing horribly and being unavailable for days, that is a price I am willing to pay. Particularly when those 2 hours are during a period of hardly any activity on the site.

                            That's exactly the reason... It's a world wide conspiracy.

                            AND it obviously suits Ev1Servers...

                              Oh NO! I jsut scheduled a turnchat for around that time!

                              This affects the chat server as well of course?
