Of course I choose to pick up tribesnext during server downtime. Wishing you good luck and haste in fixing the servers so I can make an account.

One of the two hardware issues I was seeing has been resolved. Still running a few tests on the second issue (doesn't seem operationally relevant, but making sure). The very last hardware bits are arriving tomorrow.

I'll be installing the hypervisor and administration OS this weekend, and finishing a set of security related modifications to the system. With luck, I'll be able to bring up account services (but not yet browser services) by Monday. The new box is going to be running from my comparatively slow home DSL for another week or two before I install it in the data center, and there will be other short ups and downs after Monday while I get things sorted out.

Any news on this? I've been trying to authenticate every day this week and just wanted to know if I should keep trying.

This weekend I've completed the installation of the secured hypervisor and administration domain OS. Still aiming for Tuesday or Wednesday account service reactivation.

I've finally been able to start the process of restoring the (7000 GiB) backup image of my old server onto the new machine. Unfortunately, the backup disk itself seems to be the limiting process (25 MiB per second) and the estimated time of completion is 80 hours (= 3 days, 8 hours) -- finishing sometime early Saturday morning.

I may be able to bring TribesNext services online with about 10% of the backup restored. I'll give that a try tomorrow evening.

Wow that's a lot of data. I'm just looking to start a new account since I haven't played in so long-- no idea what my old login or email was. Will we be able to create a new account before everything is copied over?

He just said possibly.

Yeah. You don't need your email. Just a login and password. Smiley

I'm not going to boot the VM yet. During the restoration process, throughput to the target device is just too slow.

Fortunately, the process has been going more quickly than my initial measurement. The process should be complete somewhere between the next 23.5 and 40 hours (not exactly sure how quickly the empty space in the image will be crossed).

The backup restoration process is nearly complete. I'll be setting up the virtual machine configuration to use this image and trying to get full TribesNext services back online tomorrow night.
