Kero Server Is Back Up - Video Services are Restored

Post by GloryQuestor » Sun May 08, 2016 10:49 am

Hi, everyone:

We have been keeping the Kero server going for a while now on minimal support due to the failure of two hard drives that needed to be replaced. The replacements are on their way, but unfortunately a third drive has failed this morning, which renders Kero inoperable. This means that our previews and local downloads are completely down. We hope to get the replacements installed as soon as they reach the server site. Note that our database and forum servers are operating normally, so these services are still available.

Thank you for your patience during this time, and we will work to resolve this issue as soon as we are able to.

update @ 2016-05-14T13:17-04:00: back up now — derobert

Aww, Jesus. :/ I feel like sometimes we're trying to put out wildfires with a garden hose.

When the server is back up and running, someone bring me a defibrillator. As of right now, I have died.

I hope that everything was being backed up to a Remote Storage device (i.e. NAS maybe) and that the hard drives were set as a hardware RAID with parity enabled in addition to data striping on the hard drives in addition to the drive that was set aside for the Operating System

Should be back up now. I don't think any videos were corrupted, but I'll be running a full integrity check later today or tomorrow, and will restore any corrupted ones from backup.
