Skyline Raid Maintenance [02/06/2009]


Recommended Posts

On Friday February 6th between 3:00 AM EST and 5:00AM EST we will be upgrading the firmware on the raid card on Skyline. We are doing this as a precaution has the firmware is a bit out of date and the problem experienced the day before should not happen. This portion of the maintenance will require about 15 minutes of down time as we cannot upgrade the firmware while the machine is active.

The second portion of this maintenance window is to replace a bad drive the raid card had reported. Now it's no longer claiming to be bad but it was when the machine went down. So as a precaution we're going to replace the drive. This will not cause any down time and the array will rebuild itself in the morning.

Start time (EST): 3:00am

End time (EST): 5:00am

Duration: 2 hours

Estimated Down Time: 15 minutes
