Default A Word About Saturday Night's Offline Event

Late last week, BP server had a drive failure event. Not super-critical as it was the RAID mirrored drive of the one the server uses in production. But, since it was our hot backup drive, it was important for this drive to be replaced and and re-synchronized to our production drive.

The server was powered down Saturday night (US), the drive replace, repowered, and the synchronization process restarted. I was under the impression this process was going to happen overnight, and not right around the end of Game 2 of the Calder Cup Finals. I guess I was mistaken.

Anyway, the synchronization process for the new backup drive did not go well, and the machine will be de-powered again around midnight tonight (June 4 US-CDT) to replace some faulty hardware. So, our downtown isn't yet done, but hopefully by this time tomorrow it will be.
