Looks like we aren't getting in the
replacement drives until mon/tues
of next week so the array will continue to be in degraded state until
then. Thankfully it's still under warranty so the turn around wont be
too bad. Tentatively putting the work to happen on Tuesday now.
We were able to
put in new disks today, but the raid array didn't fully
recover. We got lots of I/O errors, and have been unable to run JFS
recovery successfully so far.
In the meantime we're running http://download.wikimedia.org/
copy of the last couple of dumps that had been copied to another server.
The dump _files_ are there but currently the index is not.
We're not 100% sure whether we'll be able to recover the earlier dumps
or not, but of course more will be made soon enough. :)
Some additional files such as the MediaWiki release download and DVD ISO
downloads are still in process of being restored.
Thanks for the update Brion. I'll be checking in with Rob tomorrow to
see how ready the new set of drives are and if we are set to start
generating the snapshots anew.
