Little more update on LinuxRocks.
Do to the bad ram we dropped it from 384 to 290 with failover dimms available.
Looks as the only effected drive was the OS raid. The OS was reinstalled on the host and the VMs came backup.
I took the opportunity to run some firmware updates and the host and change some bios settings.
Also the host was complaining about cache battery but after firmware update it came back online.
LR is Back UP!
Wow, that was a rough outage. Think I have heard of something called sleep. I sure miss it 😜
The Host was reinstalled and some bad ram was removed.
XFS zero byte many OS files. Luckily it was only on the OS RAID.
Anyway, it is back up. I will update you more on what happened later if anyone is interested.
As stated in my last toot we are going to have an outage to recover the host.
If anyone would like to stay in the loop you can join us on telegram for updates, question, or just like to chat or help.
The host the lr's vm is running on took a dump. Currently the VMs are up and running but all access including console is in accessible on the host.
The host OS and the VMs run on two separate arrays. The best guess at this time is the OS array crapped out.
I do not want to reboot anything until we grab the latest backup for all the VMs currently running.
Unfortunately I have no idea till reboot which maybe later tonight.
Don't fear lr will be back
Let's face it, to the wider world open source has a bit of a PR problem. I know from personal experience. I've known about Linux for about 20 years and yet it's only in the last three months that I've started to seriously use it. What's taken me so long? There is so much understandable outrage at the moment about the likes of Facebook. Why aren't more people exploring the alternatives?
