Services back online after memory upgrade (though not quite as much as planned as one of the memory sticks was bad).
All services will be down around 7pm tomorrow, Wed, Oct 25. I will be adding memory to the vmware host everything runs on in hopes of alleviating some of the recent performance problems.
The fileserver upgrade did not happen, as the Dell did not see the new drive. I did verify that it should not need a reboot to see a new drive though, so no downtime should be needed until I move the vm that are on this secondary fileserver to the primary (waiting for the new drives for the primary for that to occur).
webmail is down while upgrading file server they’re on. The disks are supposed to be hotswappable, but Dell doesn’t seem to understand the concept…
Sorry the new NAS didn’t work out; the new location seems to be stable.
The software update did not fix the problem, so I’m moving agora yet again, back to an older, slower but reliable server.
I have one of these at home that has no problem and noticed it has newer software, so I’ve updated the system to see if that solves the problem. The vms are coming back online now.
Well, the new NAS is even worse than the old one, despite being a higher performance system, so things will be down for a while while I move things off of it.
Hopefully things will stabilize now…
The vmware server seems to be getting confused, so I’m suspending all the virtual machines and rebooting it. Suspending takes a relatively long time, but allows things to pickup where they left off. Hopefully backup within the hour…
