IMPORTANT: Required Server Maintenance 4/12/07

Post by oarie » Thu Apr 12, 2007 3:20 pm

I just wanted to let as many people as possible know that there has been a hard drive failure in our raid array and the server must be shut down in order to repair it. It appears the raid controller is defective as well which is hwy the server must be shut down.

The site will be temporarily unavailable for about an hour while the controller and any faulty drives are swapped out.

Sorry for the inconvenience, please expect the site to be unavailable for approximately one hour which will begin within the next 10-20 minutes.

Thank you.

OK, the server is back online and operating at 99.999%. I have a few more things I have to do and I'm not sure whether I'm going to do them right now or put them off until late night either tonight or tomorrow night. As soon as I decide I will let everyone know.

Everything went smooth and the CPU and system memory was upgraded at the same time. We were due for a CPU upgrade so I figured I'd take advantage of the downtime to upgrade the CPU and memory too while I was at it.

Thanks for your patience during these upgrades and maintenance.

I will let you know when the remainder of the maintenance will be performed.
