Busy.. (13 Oct 2003)
Within two weeks...
|Heron||Primary webserver||Well, this was an emergency move after a hardware failure of the old server. Unfortunately, we forgot some stuff and someone rooted it via phpBB and sudo. So another emergency move (3 hours last Sunday night) onto a new server which we will enable CGI on when we feel ready. (It's roughly the same as running a public access shell server).|
|Chukar||Online Backup server||RAID controller decided it was a good day to die. Emergency move to an unused server promptly killed it and after a second move it seems ok|
|Faya||Research group server||Multiple disk failure. Scrape remains off and replace|
|Parakeet||Syslog and secure console server||Primary disk failure. Scrape remains off and replace.|
And Merlin (major fileserver) froze solid today and needed a SysRq-B. I think we should ask physics dept what experiments that started doing about two weeks ago.
One top of that, every spare moment has been spent running Fresher's Week at the union. [photos]
