Comments on the following newsitem

One of the web-servers has locked up tonight and as you might expect from the fail-over feature, well, it didn't fail-over.

At this moment we're up again on one web server. The other one boots but complains about having exceeded the maximum number of drives on the RAID controller. Pretty fancy considering is hasn't been touched in months. However, a quick Google search suggests that it may be failing drives. The error message is fatal, meaning I can't even enter the RAID BIOS to check what's wrong.

I will drive up there tomorrow. Until then, let's hope that Murphy stays away from the other web-server.

"Drives" does not sound good.

Jay for keeping Murphy locked up in the closet!!

The broken drive in the server was the drive where the backups of this web-server were stored. Fortunately, all these backups are also copied to the update server.

Everything is back up again without loss of data. However, until after the daily update there may be differences in the stats between the web-servers because the "broken" one was not updated during the night. This will correct itself for every project that is updated.
