Server will be going down for Maitenance likely next week

Postby houkouonchi » Wed Jun 12, 2013 4:43 pm

Update: 06/29/13
Server is back with its new array.

Unfortunately it took longer than expected due to several complications:

1) The controller I used to create the new array was in a format the older model controller in my server couldn't use.

Because of this I ended up having to gank a spare controller and now have two raid controllers in the system (the original one drives the SSDs and the new one drives the new 3 TB disks).

2) The new controller I added wasn't supported by the kernel on the server so I had to build a new kernel.

Anyway the server is all back up and should stay up for good.
End Update


Update: 06/28/13
Server is going down to night in approximately 2 hours (8 PM PST)
End Update

Update: 06/17/13
It looks like the drives are not going to be coming until Friday so this is going to get delayed another week as time is needed to copy the data to the drives. The updated schedule is now Jun 27th or 28th.
End Update

Just a heads up that likely sometime next week (might be 2 weeks) so probably on June 20th or 21st.

It will be going down for possibly up to several hours. I am replacing the current raid array (8x1.5TB in raid6) which stores all data on the server to new disks (8x3TB in raid6).

The extra space is not really needed but the main reason for this is the current array has already had 2/8 drives fail (both within the last 6 months). These two disks have since been replaced but already have re-allocated sectors and the 6 other disks have been powered on 24/7 for over 4 years.

Basically I feel these disks have served out their lifetime and its time for new ones. The new disks are Hitachi which have proven to be far more reliable than what is in the server now (Seagate).

I will update this post next week with an exact date/time the server will be going down.
