Fileserver joy - Ed's journal
Fileserver joy
Well, it's still broke. But only 50% broke at the moment - out of 4 filesystems, 2 are fixed and 'available' The other two are in varying states of screwed-ness.

So we have a lot of happy people. The one minor silver lining on our cloud is that the backup started and completed last night, on this fileserver. So I've been restoring 'urgent' files to other fileservers.

Not perfect, but better.

Got users concerned about 'outages' too, as they've a right to. Unfortunately, this is the first 'major' we've had on this system - it's a failover solution, but that doesn't help when it's the filesystem on the back end that's got problems.

Never mind, maybe this'll highlight why IT really does need lots of money for storage :)
