Neptune Raid Maintenance (Drive Replacement) [12/15/2008]

The raid controller on Neptune has alerted us to a bad block on one of the drives in the raid array. When we are alerted of bad blocks on a drive in our raid-10 arrays we replace the drive as a protective measure even when the raid array is not reporting the drive as bad. We will be doing this Monday December 15th between 2:00AM EST and 4:00AM EST. The server has hot-swap drives so there will be no down time during the swap. Once a new drive has been inserted into the array we will rebuild the array which may cause slightly higher load during this time. We do not expect this to cause any serious degradation in services.

Date: 12/15/2008

Start time (EST): 2:00am EST

End time (EST): 4:30am EST

Estimated Down Time: None

Duration: 2 hours

Drive has been replaced, and is currently rebuilding. We expect it to take up to one hour, without any sincere impact on performance. Should you have issues we're available via support ticket for questions.

We'll update this thread once it's completed.
