NSF01: Unscheduled downtime

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The recent disk failure will be repaired tonight on the large temp storage. This requires a reboot. Sorry for the short notice.
Also, there will be an (overseen) Point of Use (POU) upgrade. When the system comes back up again,


will be (hopefully) functional again as RAID0. The long-term solution involves

  • having an on-site spare disk provided by SGI
  • having an implementation plan for RAID5 available.

The next time a disk fails, RAID5 will be implemented, using the available on-site spare disk. This should reduce the duration of the next downtime, and prevent future downtimes.
