Bosco (Backups Machine) Maintenance [12/22/2009]


Recommended Posts

We're going to be doing maintenance on the bosco server tonight which currently acts as our backup machine. We'll be swapping out the memory and raid controller of this server as we believe they may be causing problems resulting in backup corruption. It will take us from 10:00pm EST until 12:00am EST to swap the parts. Once that is done we will most likely formating the machine if the raid card is unable to pickup the old array properly.

So please keep in mind we will be wiping out all the backups and we will not have the usual 7 days retention. This is unfortunate but we need to solve the corruption problems and switching of the raid card will most likely mean we'll need to make a new raid array and as a result format the machine.

If you have any questions about this maintenance window do not hesitate to contact us.
