So remember a few weeks back I had said the ups battery had gone bad and needed to replace it. Well I was looking at next month buying and shipping the batteries to the server location. Well the world gave me the bird on that plan. Today there was a breaker that was blown, and when the server was restarted it gave 4 short beeps.
So we lost either the motherboard or the memory! If it’s memory no big deal I pull a stick and be happy, it does have 24 gigs of ram in it. But won’t be able to get this done till tomorrow. And all the recent backups are on the server. The most recent that I have that is offsite is from the 3rd. So we might loose 10 days if I can’t get the machine to boot up tomorrow. Don’t worry I will refund your subscription’s this month.
So the board will be down till tomorrow after I get off work, and get the guy to the box. And then we shall see if I can play with the memory and get it to boot. Or I need to throw up a VM here and rebuild the mud box, till I can get the main server running.
Got the guy to look at the box tonight! He had jiggled a few wires and make sure everything is seated and up it came!
But lost a day’s worth of scripting. I had a few corrupted files that I had to replace but it’s back up and running!
I would happily take donations to replace the batteries sooner. Only need $50 dollars.
