Hardware trouble

Right when I don’t really have any time due to work (working until 9pm etc) some hardware started to fail…

– noc.phyxia.net died after I put back the second CPU. Jorne (hayano) brought home to me (thanks!), apparently the fan controllers on the mainboard are all failing, after a while the fas turn off and all fan readouts read 6335 rpm. I connected the CPU and Chassis fans to standard molexes and everything is working great now. It’ll be back up when I visit Versatel tonight. In the meanwhile its rails also arrived so it’ll be mounted properly too 😉

– datalock.powersource.cx, which is one of the most important servers in Brussels, not only failed a disk in its RAID5 raidset but there also seems something else to be wrong… It reboots every night at 0:30 with a CPU context corrupt panic. I’ll be replacing the CPU’s and CPU cooling, and possibly the RAM – hopefully it’ll then stay stable. I’ve got a 200GB Seagate disk but I’m afraid it’s not big enough to replace the 200GB Maxtor to fix the RAID.

– tequila.powersource.cx, which is in Amsterdam, broke a disk … this has been fixed yesterday, big thanks to my hoster Zylon for the remote hands. The box is now up’n’running again with a full RAID set.

 *argh* 🙂
