Disk Failure

The server just crashed for some reason – I’d really wish they’d put out some stable releases! Linux didn’t use to be crash-prone, and it’s horrible when you can’t just rely on it being there when you need it.

The RAID got degraded and is currently offline – until I can find a spare or figure out how to tell EVMS to retry using the existing disk, which seems to be in perfect working order after all.

Update: The server will be taken offline on Sunday (October 22nd) at 14:00 in order to add a new spare to the RAID array. Since I don’t have a whole bunch of 500 GB disks lying around, I may need to reboot the server a few times toggling disks around, but will try to keep it to a minimum.
