On Monday December 20th between 12pm and 5pm CST the Bosco server will be having the raid card on the system replaced. Unfortunately at the start of this window backups will be unavailable until the the raid card is replaced. This means during the window you will be unable to access any backups from the R1Soft option in your control panel. The raid card has been reporting more and more frequently errors which we believe it would be wise to replace the card before it results in any data loss. We hope the window will not be for the total time we have just given ourselves this amount of time due to the sheer size of this machine and to have an accurate time frame if we are to run into any issues.

Date: 12/20/2010

Start time (CST): 12:00pm

End time (CST): 5:00pm

Estimated Down Time: 1 hour

We are still working on this. What happened was the old raid card was failing so we were replacing it to resolve that problem. Once we replaced it the new raid card would boot it's internal kernel then panic. We then proceeded to try the older raid card again and it unfortunately did not function very well as it was failing and was extremely slow. We are working on figuring out why the new raid card is not functioning. As soon as we have more information it'll be provided in this topic.
