    Maintenance Complete as of October 8th, 2018 14:30 Central US / 19:30 UTC
    For users of our Aurora Interledger service, please be sure to update your moneyd-uplink-xrp to v.1.3.2.

    Upon upgrade, be sure to backup your .moneyd.json file, then delete the .moneyd.json file.
    Next, run the command: moneyd xrp:configure --advanced.
    You will be prompted to select an ILP connector where you will insert:
    ilsp1.phobosnode.com
    Accept the default name for the payment channel to create, and then enter your XRP secret for the XRP wallet you intend to utilize.
    After the configuration is complete, be sure to edit the .moneyd.json file to make sure that the "assetScale" is set to 9. If the setting is still at 6 - change it to 9 and save the file.
    If you have any questions or seek support, please contact us via Gitter or our social media accounts listed on our website.

    MAINTENANCE WINDOW EXTENSION
    Due to issues encountered with our migration to the new codebase, payment channels were unable to be reset in the time frame originally stated. Payment Channel closings were intitiated at 13:26 Central Time US / 18:26 UTC. Due to this, existing Payment Channels will be fully closed at 14:30 Central Time US / 19:30 UTC.

    All Codius Hosts and Moneyd clients of "G.AUROA" ILSP1.PHOBOSNODE.COM will need to update their software to the latest version of code and re-establish their connections to our Aurora Interledger service.

    We apologize for the extension of this maintenance window and downtime of our services. We will re-evaluate our pre-testing procedures so that such outages may be mitigated in the future.

    We thank our users for their patience and for selecting Solstice as your provider for Interledger network access.

    Service Outage Notice: Solstice Maintenance Today - G.AURORA ILSP Connector Mainteance:
    Due to recent underlying code changes to "ilp-plugin-xrp-asym-server" and a need to better optimize STREAM connection quality, Solstice will be performing a series of changes to the G.AURORA ILP Connector. As part of this maintenance, ALL PAYMENT CHANNEL CONNECTIONS WILL BE CLOSED. Due to the design of XRPL Payment Channels, this will occur over a 60 minute window. First, the payment channels will be signaled for close. After the required 60 minutes of wait, the payment channels will be instructed to close. During this time, reconfiguration of the "ilp-plugin-xrp-asym-server" will commence. This configuration will change the ASSET SCALE from 6 to 9. This change will allow more granular control of XRP value transfer and thus allow more efficient use of the STREAM protocol. If you have your Codius Host, or MoneyD client connected to G.AURORA, please re-establish your connection to initialize a new payment channel with the new asset scale settings. If you experience any issues connecting to G.AURORA after this maintenance is performed, please contact us to troubleshoot further. While this change is known as a "breaking change" (the change will require new payment channels to be established due tothe configuration and code changes) the importance of performing this change is significant enough to warrant such an action. Solstice appreciates the trust our users have in our services, and we remain dedicated to providing you the highest quality services as we grow the emerging Internet of Value. The Maintenance Window for these changes will begin at 12:00 Central Time US / 17:00 UTC - and are expected to last until 1:30 Central US / 18:30 UTC.
