Another quick note to mention that last night's power outage was a success, or at least our part of it. Thanks to all the cable/power cleanup Jeff and I did weeks ago it was a breeze getting everything safely powered down last night. This morning after we got the "all clear" we brought everything back up. Ultimately everything was fine, but there a few minor obstacles. Like our home directories being mounted read only (a misconfiguration in the exports file that got exercised upon reboot). And the BOINC database server booted up in the wrong kernel which didn't have fibre card support (though we fixed that last time but I really fixed it now). Also the BOINC database replica needed some extra convincing that it was in fact a replica server. We also moved vader into its new rack - part of the slooooow shuffle process of reorganzing the server closet (moving old stuff out, new stuff in, etc.).

Anyway.. we're catching up on the big backlog now which will take a while of course. Hang in there.

I second the motion and state that the start-up, once complete, was seamless... (I was in-transit from home to work during the start-up...)

Thanks guys again for the information and to be honest. I personally couldn't tell that a power outage had occurred :-)

Hope you all manage to get a decent weekend away from work and enjoy your time.

Enjoy your new found caffeine rush with your new espresso machine (if you are still allowed to use it!)
