Description Richard Werner 2008-04-02 15:15:32 UTC
We are experiencing some hardware issues with the our mirror server.
As a result we've temporarily disabled access to the affected directories, which are all but distfiles and snapshots.

Portage rsync services remains available.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.get mirrored files from

We are working on resolving the issue as soon as possible.

We have decided to switch machine (and datacenter) for this service since the hardware issue is not going to be resolved (replaced).

Hence we need to update DNS entries and allow the new IP in on the master mirror.

Old IP:
New IP:

Hi Richard,

I'm just going to update this for you now, the masterdistfiles password would remain the same and you'll be able to use rsync1 again very shortly.

Warm Regards,
Alex Howells

Updated ACL for rsync1, should be live within 45-60 minutes.

As the DNS is out of scope for what I can do I will take no further action regarding this bug.

To prevent having old portage trees sync'ed the service on the old machine ( will be kept closed.

Apologies, I didn't know that the DNS wasn't updated the last time (by Alex).

I've updated them now, it should kick in in a while.
