The Kobold server has had a drive fail and in the process we have identified a small issue with the raid controller that prevents us from performing a 'hot-swap' or online swap of the drive.

 

We are scheduling an emergency maintenance window starting at 12:01 AM ET on 02/26/2014 to shut the server down, replace the drive, and resolve the raid controller issue.  We do not expect this maintenance to exceed a half hour, however, there is the possibility that we can run into unforeseen problems necessitating more time.  We will keep this thread updated during the entire process.

We are starting to bring the server down to perform the maintenance. I will update this thread as the work continues.

The work is still ongoing.  I am working with the onsite tech to complete the tasks as quickly as possible.

The server is back online.  SItes may be slow for a while while caches are rebuilt.
