MLUG Mirror Hardware Failure
2008-05-07 19:55:18 GMT
We are back online - finally! The MLUG mirror was hit by a minor power outage which caused two of the mirror's hard disks to end up damaged. Due to the way the machine was RAIDed, all configuration files, mailing list info, website and mirrored files were lost. The previous backups available of the configuration and mailing lists are available but may be somewhat dated. I encourage everybody who is on the list, and is reading this, to contact members/subscribers to re-subscribe or signup again to the website.
We have taken steps so that the RAID is more resilient, so that even in the case of 2 hard disks going out, we are still in a position to recover in most cases. This was done thanks to Philip Toledo LTD sponsoring 2 new hard disks which have been installed instead of the two paper weights.
Hope to see you all online and active in our forums once again!
