Server outage yesterday.

MSameer's picture

We suspect a problem with either the SCSI harddisk or the SCSI controller which were responsible for the recent server lockups.

Since me and alaa'll be outside Egypt soon for a while and no quarantee about the net connectivity, We had to transfer the root "/" to te IDE drive although we had another SCSI drive attachd to the server. But to eliminate any problem with the SCSI controller we decided to depend on the IDE until we are back then dig farther.

We had to reboot multiple times until everything was fine.

God damn it, I wasn't able to enjoy Cilantro because of that :p
