It's gonna be down for a bit. Use fysh for now. Read on for the gory technical details.
To fend off the inevitable questions:
In the either case, I'm going to have to pick up a new SCSI card, pull anoteher box offline, backup everything on each drive then do destructive testing on it. This will take about 8 hours per drive... once overnight, once during the day.
Two of them I already know I have to lowlevel... fortunatly they were striped on /tmp so have nothing important. A third I will probably have to, which is bad because it's my home directory.
However, and this is really important, after stripping out about 8 gigs of drive space, I was able to read all the disks at the same time without crashing. That means I know what drives are dead... and whats currently running the system is probably OK.
Of course, all the removed drives are pretty much out of warantee, so I have new wall decorations. *shrug* Such is life in the fast lane... To horribly abuse a bad metaphor: "driving on the information superhighway, and I just threw a rod."
Anyway, this convieniently co-insides with a major push here at work, so I only have an hour or so to deal with this this week. Joy.
Anyway, I'll get it fixed as soon as possible, but it's gonna take a while.
