SGL Outage

Yes, we have experienced another outage. We had a drive failure on our main server and our RAID array did not automatically recover. Dad put in an hour or so seeing if he could get it fixed but wasn’t able to get anywhere with it. He wasn’t able to get it to respond so we decided that the best thing for me to do was to come home to Geneseo on Wednesday night and deal with it myself.

We were down from early Wednesday morning when the drive failed until 3:30am on Thursday morning. Almost twenty-four hours but not quite. We are currently running in a “limping” state and have been backed up and are being kept up to date to Newark as we expect the server to go down again.

We are attempt to relocate this machine’s services to a server in Scranton over the next several days.
