*SIGH* - Server on it's last legs...

I've been fighting with one of our webservers for most of the afternoon, and slowly moving all of the sites from it on to a different machine, as it appears to be dying entirely. Hopefully we should have the remaining sites over there tommorow morning, then there's just the waiting till everyone has confirmed that they all work.

Many thanks to Dave who was also working till 6pm, I finished about 30 mins ago for the day, having had one real break of 30 mins, and a 20 min drive since ~ 3.30pm when I got to the server room to fit the other machine with a new disk to take the sites.

And now, I think I shall consider sleeping.

Will the madness never end...

OK - so we've got a very simple backup set for windows boxes on our work network, an rsync of the smb shares happens daily, 3 shares for each machine. Now, our sales guy's machine has just dropped its disk, this in itself is not a big problem, as everything should have been backed up ~ 11am this morning (which it was).... UNFORTUNATELY since I set up the shares, someone decided to change his e-mail client (yes, OK, I know, he should be using imap and we wouldn't have this problem, that's the next issue), and so he's just lost ~ 3 months worth of e-mail, the most important of which being his sent-mail.


On the plus side, this might finally get more people using IMAP to our server, and so this situation not recurring :)

I suppose the next problem will be finding him a machine to use in the mean time.

Neeed beer!

Why do these things happen on a Friday last thing?

Well, at 4pm our shiny new Win2k3 webserver fell over, it appears that it's killed a disk, and that the motherboard is knackered. Won't even get to the BIOS anymore :(

Left work ~ 6pm after me and Dave had got the new system installing, hoping that we can install the secure cert on the server that is needed but we have no key for it (unless we can rescue one from the other disk, which is unlikely).

Ah well, nearly time for the pub now, might nip in to work tommorow to kick it some more, depending on if the MD calls or not :)

Temporarily assigned the IPs to a linux box which serves a page saying "it's broken, should be back monday", so at least there's something there.
