Dear All, There was a problem with our whois service again this morning, Friday 17th of July between 4.30 and 9.30 a.m. The whois server was running but answers to all queries were empty. Please note, that updates were not affected by that. You do *not* need to resend your updates. The problem was caused by an error in scripts performing mirroring between the master data/update server and the whois server. This was corrected at 9.30 and fixes were implemented preventing (hopefully) this kind of problems from reoccurring. We wish to thank those of you who took the time and the trouble to notify us. We apologize for any inconvenience this might have caused. If you have any more questions, please don't hesitate to contact <ripe-dbm at ripe.net>. Regards, Roman Karpiuk ____________________________ RIPE Database Administration.
