Early Friday morning the mail server went back down, only hours after I had rebooted it. It died of another NFS hang. I had to drive to Bellevue to manually power cycle it again. Services were restored at 6:30 AM PST. Then at about 8:45 AM PST the mail server suffered yet another NFS hang. At this point I was already at work and could not deal with it until I was off work Friday evening. Since I've had enough fun, I swapped the drives with ultra6, one of our incoming mail servers. This should rule out a hardware failure. The incoming mail server is a redundant, we have two, so if it fails, the other one can back it up for now. During the transistion I had to shutdown all other servers temporarly to get things positioned and restored correctly. All services have been restored as of 8 PM PST. Our file server also had ran out of space on the /usr partition. That has been cleared up as well as of Saturday morning at 1:30 AM PST. All services should have been restored now, if you are still having problems, please contact support, thank you! -Carl Dinse Eskimo North Support | Voice Numbers - (206)812-0051 or 800-246-6874 firstname.lastname@example.org | Voice help available 9am to 5pm (PST) Mon-Fri PO Box 55816 | (Temporarily closed Saturday and Sunday) Seattle, WA 98155-0816 | Fax us at - (206)812-0054
