Asset server migration this Saturday/Sunday

EDIT: This maintenance was successfully completed. –coyled

Hello. As Adam mentioned a couple of posts ago, thanks to generous user donations OSGrid has a shiny new asset server ready to go into service. This will bring our asset storage capacity from 1TB to 3.5TB, and decrease the grid’s recurring monthly operational costs.

Most of the assets have already been sync’d to the new machine, but we’ll have to take the asset server offline to do one final sync before flipping the switch. This maintenance window is now scheduled for:

    Sunday, 2009-01-17 03:00-06:00 UTC
    Saturday, 2009-01-16 7pm-10pm PST

You can also go to and convert that time into your local time zone.

All other grid services will remain up during this time, though the user experience will be degraded as sims will be unable to upload or retrieve uncached assets. After the conclusion of the maintenance, it’s recommended that region operators restart their regions.

Further status information will be posted to

No configuration change is required on your end.

Apologies for the inconvenience, thank you for your patience during this upgrade, and thanks for using OSGrid.
