Update to: "So, it's...."

So, it's now 5:20am, and I'm still hard at work. The server is on round 2 of the rebuild, and the last one took around 12 hours. The good thing is that all 4 drives are present, and in working condition, but I'm inclined to replace the one that droped out. I have gotten all of 2 hours of sleep, since I left at midnight or a little after, and was asleep by 12:45, and my alarm was set for 2:45am, cus I figured out that, at midnight, the rebuild still had 30% left, and it was running around 9% an hour, and boy was I dead on. I loged into the VPN from home, and checked the status, and is was around 96% at 3am. So, I got dressed, made some grub, and got my ass back down to the office. So, after restoring some Microsoft Windows Server 2003 dll files that got fucked up somehow, it's in the middle of the second rebuild, and at 5:25am, The drive on Channel 1* was at 2% and the drive on Channel 2, was at 6%. *(this is the drive that droped out, and did not rebuild as part of the last rebuild, so I expect it to take longer then the other drive).

Well, you all are free to call me. If you know my cell, go for it, or call my office number (505) 343-6100, and I'm ext 309. I will post more when I know more. Well, I'm off to see why the SQL is not connection to other computers.

Peace,
Kevin

Great!

So, now that I have the second rebuild under way, I thought, maybe I would head home, get some sleep, clean up. Well, after taking one look out side, I really dont know if I want to go for a drive. I can not even see whats across the street from my office due to fog. Yes, FOG! I dont know where this came from, but there is now fog in the Albuquerque Metro Area.

Back to the office batman......

LOL. Ok, so it's not the batcave, but my office can be as cold as a cave. LOL. So, it's 2pm, and I'm back in the office. I started at 1pm, by picking up a new hard disk for our server, and we have another 2 on order. So, Being that the rebuild has been running since 4am this morning, its now been running for 10 hours, and is at 77%. So, I figure it will be done by 5pm, so that means another really fun night for me!

Peace,

The Saga Continues....

So, yes, the story lives on. The story of the damn server from hell. (ok, it's not from hell, but I think I'm going to have Pastor Erik come bless the damn thing soon.) So, the second rebuild is almost done, and has been running since 4am. so, we are now at 13.5 hours on the second rebuild, and the frist rebuild took 12.5 hours or somewhere in that range. So, now I have to hope that the drive on channel 1, is waiting to rebuild due to it being the mirror or a drive. So, lets hope thats all it is, cus that means I can get some sleep tonight, and dont have to baby the damn thing. But, if the drive on Channel 1 is not waiting to rebuild, and is just fucked up, then I have some work ahead of me.

Well, I also just got back from wal-mart, where I ran into my Grandma (Talk about small world), and got (3) 12-packs of Cherry Coke, Dr. Pepper, and Mt. Dew. So, I'm now ready with lots and lots of caffine. LOL, lets just all hope I dont need it.

Peace,
Kevin
