Grid down

Huh, The OSgrid is down. Only twitter mentions some downtime, but not what the reason is, nor how long it will take to get things back up and running. The message on twitter states :

ALERT : Grid is offline possibly for the next few days or maybe even longer, we are sorry about this inconvenience but it is unavoidable!

I assume / hope it will be back up before friday, as OSG6B is scheduled to start on that day.  I see some forum topics here and here  that could indicate something went FUBAR on the grid servers. Last outage was in august 2012  just after OSG5B. It was resolved within some hours back than.

I assume the admins will keep us posted when there is news to share. If it remains silent with updates here, you can always check OSG's Forum, Twitter, Newsfeed or scroll down to the bottom of this page, and join the IRC channels to try and get a hold of any admins. ( mind they might be to busy to chat when there trying to fix stuff ). Mind your sumilators will not start, or produce a gazzilion of errors if still "up". best shut them down, and wait for the heads up.

Update : Well that didn't take long. Looks like all is online again. Found this on Nebadons G+
UPDATE : Grid is back online we were able to do a quick band-aid to get things moving again, may be more outages later this week! Stay Tuned
