HomeAway/VRBO calendars are down

We've noticed some intermittent issues with HA/VRBO iCal feeds over the past couple of days. This morning around 1AM all HA/VRBO calendars started returning HTTP ERROR 500 instead of a valid iCal feed. The main HA/VRBO site is still up, but calendar feeds are broken. You can check this by going into HA/VRBO and copying the iCal link into your browser -- you'll get an error message like the one below.

This is affecting not just OwnerRez but everyone using iCal with HA/VRBO.

We're monitoring the situation and will update as we have more info. In the meantime, we recommend manually creating the booking in OwnerRez if you get one from HA/VRBO so that all of your other calendars update correctly from OwnerRez.

If you do see your iCal from VRBO working, let us know.

The VRBO feeds look to be up now, after over 24 hours of downtime. Syncs are now working. If you had a sync you disabled during this period, you can now re-enable it.

We'll keep monitoring the situation to make sure they are solidly up and report back here with any changes.
