Some compatibility issues have arisen with our legacy tools / operating systems in Dallas (vs Portland). Therefore we now have a small team organized to virtualize some of our older tools into newer operating systems. Looks do-able

OK all jokes aside - the process is proceeding smoothly, not sure a time is estimate-able just yet mostly due to rule #1 of Murphy's law.

Damn you missed a great opportunity to use "soon".

That was originally in there... but then I censored myself before starting a riot

The Training server remains up for play. Our data for the most part has moved and is presently being configured. We have hit speed bumps and we are running behind our time schedule. The main web page is down but forums remain up http://forums.wwiionline.com/forums/ We are brewing another pot of coffee as it looks like a long night!

Monday morning update:  Work suspended a few hours ago and will resume at 9:00 PST.  We did transfer the campaign and were able to successfully start it in Portland but we have additional configuring that needs to take place.  We are moving forward ! Thanks for your patience.

Day 2 - evening update:  Update from the team working on data move from Dallas to Portland.  As reported earlier today our live campaign has been successfully transferred but we are experiencing issues with our multiple databases that have to talk with the live server.  Our team has been working together since 9:00 PST and continues with HATCH in TX and XOOM at the colo in Portland and the master of this move PILOTMC from his remote wine cave in CA, running crazy mysql commands that make our heads spin.  But we need multiple databases in-sync with the live server and we are just not there.

Looks like no campaign restart for tonight but right now we don't see this pushing into Christmas day.    Look for another update late tonight or early in the AM.

Stay with us through this short term pain and its worth the long term gain!

The guys quit working about 4 hours ago.  Work will resume this morning PST.

Not much more to report from last nights update.  I can tell you "we are moving the ball"  - it's much slower than we thought but we are making steady progress.

When the bleary eyed west coasters awaken, I'll get some more info.

S!

The new servers in Portland are ALIVE!!! 

After days of "head to wall" pounding frustrations, PILOTMC and team have successfully stabilized our game on the new servers in Portland. Quality Assurance Team is jumping into the new live version for their testing as of this announcement. 

Before we open the flood gates to everyone, there are a few more services that need to be added/configured to the new servers probably tomorrow. Good news is, the worst part is done! 

Huge thanks to the teams for their hard work, we are getting close!!!  SALUTE!

Huge progress today...

Merry Christmas all, but this is now day 4 with no server?
 

And we still can't destroy MS on training server?

This is the biggest logistical move we've ever undertaken. And we've run into a series of unforeseen challenges, which we're getting through but takes a bit more time. Consider for a moment that today is Christmas and that the RATS are taken a much-needed breather. On Christmas eve most of us worked until about 4:50 PM Pacific time, and several more continued to test beyond that.

We'll get right back to it first thing tomorrow morning, this breather is necessary and we're very close to getting things online. Meanwhile, we're testing server stability and the other teams are continuing to test several scenarios on the game cluster.

Thanks for your understanding. S!
