We broke our forums…

… in the most spectacular way possible. 😦 This is going to take a few days to sort out, I am afraid. I’m currently in London and not able to go to the datacenter to fix this. 😦

Sorry for the continued hassle.

    You can’t say “most spectacular way” and then say nothing about what happened πŸ™‚

    So, it turns out not to be a problem at all.

    Dave and Ian were working to create a new Xen guest OS and something required the machine to be restarted. Except it didn’t. They suspected that the creation of the new OS caused file system corruption on the host machine and thats why it didn’t start. We thought we would have to rebuild the machine from scratch, but I’m not in SLO right now, so we have no physical access to the machine. We were thinking of using a null modem cable from another machine to get a serial console to install and reconfigure the machine…

    We asked DWNI to investigate and when it was unresponsive, they rebooted it. And it came up normally!

    Phew.
