Yesterday I brought you the exciting news that Bohemia Interactive are switching all the DayZ console servers over to new hardware which means downtime and new names for your favourite servers.
We are currently in the process of switching all our official DayZ servers to new machines.
This means that their IP will change, so you will have to re-add your server to your favorites if it is affected.
Today we are transferring the first bunch of servers. While the number stays intact, their location might change. See below for the affected servers and their name changes.
Your characters, in-game stashes and bases should not be affected, the downtime will start at 11 AM and should last roughly 2 hours.
Server transfer starting 03.09.2019, 11 AM:
Lovely stuff, new servers, they should be good, but the migration seems to have gone a bit wonky.
“As a consequence of yesterdays server shift, we received reports of base losses on LA 4308 and DE 9314. We will now restart those servers with their previous persistence files to monitor what’s causing the issue,” the DayZ Twitter account tweeted just a few minutes ago. There are reports on the DayZ forums that other servers such as LA-4425 are also missing.
That Tweet was followed by the news that the old servers are now being restarted and the new ones and going to be locked with a password.
As we are investigating this issue further, we will restart the previous servers (see here which servers are affected: https://t.co/M6OLvWT0rE) and lock the current ones with a password. We apologize for the inconvenience.

For reference, here are the the old and new server names.
A few days ago both the PlayStation and Xbox One versions of DayZ were been hit by a nasty bug, if you were playing on the official server there’s was good chance your character could get wiped and you will lose all your progress and gear. The problem was fixed but Bohemia could not restore the characters that were wiped.
“We have been able to pin down the issue that caused a character wipe on both consoles this morning and managed to resolved it,” they tweeted. “While this means you should be able to play without further disturbances from now on, the wipe is sadly irreversible. We apologise for the inconvenience.”
