So, typical monday. Our T1 was down, it's been down since early Sunday evening. Had to call our ISP, who in turn had to call Verizon to come out. I placed the call at 9:10am, Verizon didn't show up until 11:20. One again, a "bad pair" of wires had to be "repaired" and we get our internet back. Time to research a backup/replacement ISP.
My workstation at work lost it's video card as well. Had to reboot because an rpm caused rpm to deadlock, Defunct process that nothing could kill. Upon reboot, the system would kernel panic every time it started X, even after I reconfigured it. Fun. Replaced the video card and got back to work.
Downloaded latest RHEL3 kernel to test this LSI issue I'm having. New kernel doesn't seem to improve performance on the megaraid card. Greaaaat.
Our main file server dropped a drive. Set aside this evening to replace the drive. Once replaced, the server wouldn't see the new drive. Greaaaat. Unplug and remove all the servers on top of the file server (ghetto ass rack system), walk the server out to the production floor to examine the cabling. Reseat the cables, turn it on and the drive shows up. Replace all the servers, power on the file server, start the array rebuild. Just getting ready to leave for the night when the alarm goes off again. Source error on another drive of the array. Greaaaaat. Force the rebuild, will have to replace another disk tomorrow. Now I'm home, time to start Legacy work.
