Wed Jun 20 17:38:09 PDT 2001 — Gale, our new news peering server had a disk failure in it’s RAID earlier today. Under normal operations this should not have caused a failure in the system however, when we replaced the failed disk the OS crashed causing a corruption in the filesystem. It’s been repairing it’s filesystem for the past hour and during this time we have not received or transmitted news on our network. We expect that it should be back up soon but also suspect that we will have a low article completion rate for the next few hours until the server catches up. We’ll be talking to the RAID vendor to find out why the OS crashed when we hot-swapped the failed disk. -Kelsey and Scott
