Cough. That was over 4yrs ago. Ancient history. To be forgotten by all.

Moving the webserver and primary database off the flash storage onto a traditional HDD raid 10 storage device.

There should be no outage (its moving right now), but obviously spinning media is slower than flash, so page load times may increase slightly.


This is to run diags on the flash storage that crashed at the weekend.

Blimey, WTF is happening lately  >:(

One of the hypervisors has sorta crashed, following a minor health alert this morning.  What should happen is if the hardware health is suspect, all the load moves over to another, healthy hypervisor.  In this case its just shat it pants.  The VMs are still running, but unmanageable.

So, no choice but to power cycle the underlying hardware, which will ungracefully power cycle the VMs running on it.


From an OOF prespective, this includes the primary webserver, the primary database, and the secondary database (which affinity rules say should never be on same hypervisor as primary, so something else has gone wrong there).


I shall do this when I finish work today.

Panic over - managed to finally get sufficient control of the bastid hypervisor to allow all the VMs to be move gracefully, and then rebooted the hypervisor :)

No outage needed. Happy days.  Sometimes simple victories give me a real smile :)
