Urgent server maintenance – server15

Customers hosting on server15.simplewebserver.co.uk may be aware of two short outages overnight. The first was around 30 minutes – this was due to the server being rebooted and needing to do a full disk check. The second, a couple of hours later was for just a few minutes.

On investigation this morning it has become apparent that these outages were caused by a failing disk drive which will need replacing. Fortunately the disk drive in question is the one used for backups which should make the process fairly easy.

Between 9pm and 10pm this evening (Wednesday, 6th November) we’ll be taking the server offline in order to replace the failing drive. There will be around a 30 minute window of service disturbance during this time as we power down the server, remove the drive and check everything is as it should be in the BIOS.

We apologise for the short notice but I’m sure you’ll appreciate the urgency required here.
