Monday Monday

Opened the front door of work this morning to hear a screaming alarm emanating from the server closet. One of the drives on the RAID chain died in the Web/FTP/Mail server over the weekend. Luckily I had a spare from the summer when Harrisburg lost a drive. Took me about 15 min to swap out the drive and then 2 hours to have it rebuild the drive. Now I remember why I preach RAID 5 to my other tech buddies. Even though the drive died the server was able to keep working without lose of performance. And the drive was still under warranty so I was able to send it in and will be getting a new one to replace it….
