TAGS: raid svn2github
UPDATE2: The service is now resumed.
UPDATE: The server is now replicated with no data loss. RAID is still recovering though (copying data from one disk to another), so to not overwhelm the whole system I'll re-enable svn2github syncing only after that is done.
After migrating svn2github.com (and several other services) to a new server everything was going smoothly for a month or two, until recently I received an alert regarding RAID degradation.
One of the disk in the RAID failed (reading /dev/sda just fails) and in order to prevent the other disk from failing I disabled any write operation (read: updates) for the svn2github-controlled repos.
A new server is on the way, but unfortunately, due to the weekend, it will be back only on Monday. Once the data is migrated I'll re-start updating the repos again.
Expect an update on this on Tuesday :-)
