The good news is that the Database is up and running again. The server crash did not affect queries, but delayed the updates. Nothing is lost and the updates are now being processed. To be honest, the last crash happened at the end of March, and that was a hardware problem. What happened this time was a break signal sent to DB server by the console server (which resulted in server reboot), the situation we have not expected, but sure it will not happen again. There is always a probability that something goes wrong, but we try to do our best to minimize the problems it causes. Regards, Andrei Robachevsky DB Group Manager RIPE NCC P.S. If you really plan to mirror the RIPE Database, you will need to sign an AUP. This is normal practice.
