More About Server Disk Failure
A disk failed in one of the main file-server arrays this morning and until it is fixed the server will be under performance strain and sensitive to data loss. The files on that array are all to do with the linux workstations, not mail, web or home directories. Normally, we could fix such a failure by swapping out disks on the fly, but in this case the disk in question is the one the server boots from.
