Home Directory Outage

  • We were having trouble with the hard drives in the raid array, and the progress that had been made on restores was lost.
  • An older copy of web pages is now available for most people.
  • We installed new disks and bypassed the raid controller.
  • Mirror initialization complete and home directory restores started. Faculty accounts have been restored first to try to minimize impact on courses. Partially restored home directories will be mounted read-only to prevent loss of data.
  • shortly before noon the server became unresponsive again. The file system recovered and we will continue restores while trying to do an autopsy once the server is fully up.
  • Server crashed again at 3:15am but is back in service.

  • All accounts restored As of 5pm on Friday, March 4th.
