Bill performed final installion of the new disk shelves in tahoma. Downtime was approximately two hours. The Oracle application server on SHASTA was restarted and the Cascade web menu was refreshed.
We have been struggling with a faulty disk array on tahoma. Compaq service was on site, and replaced a faulty connector cable. The disk array is functioning normally.
The Webboard server was rebooted to re-enable access.
redherring, the SNAP Appliance for OIS, was upgraded from version 3.0 to version 3.4.
Becuase of a change to Cas9i, the Cascade web server, shasta served a blank home page. The script that created that page was pointed to the wrong database instance. The error was corrected.
A new Dell PowerEdge 1650 server was installed to serve as host to the Best Access system, which will move off Ketron.
Server Name: lenel
1 RAID5 container (3X18GB disks)
C: 4 GB
D: 31 GB
The database servers, tahoma & baker, and the frontend forms servers snidley, dudley, and fenwick, began dropping persistent client Oracle and telnet connections. ICMP packets were also lost.
Speed and duplex settings on the switch ports to which these servers were connected were checked and found to be correct (100 Mbps, full duplex).
The problem cleared up after about 1 hour. Will check further.
A corrupted dabase trigger in the basis Oracle instance caused the B.A.S.I.S. system to stop polling and recording events.
The faulty trigger was LENEL.EVENTS_SPEEDY_TI1, and the fault was the insertion of carriage returns within two AND operators.
Paul corrected and revalidated the trigger, which cleared the problem.
Ketron was rebooted to attempt to clear a “Polling Stopped” error with the B.A.S.I.S. software. It did not clear the problem.
The PHP scripting engine on the University Web Server, www.ups.edu, was upgraded to version 4.3.0. Details of the configuration are at http://www.ups.edu/info.php
The new Millenium OLAP Server was configured with Windows 2000 Server and SQL Server 2000, SP3.
Server Name: maury
1 RAID 5 container (3X18 GB disks)
C: 5 GB System and SQL Server program
D: 29 GB Mill OLAP data
Jeremy was able to automate backups on the Windows 2000 systems with a scheduled script. This will allow us to start backups on these systems later, and avoid some problems we’ve been having with open files.
The VPN Concentrator was restarted twice this morning in an effort to diagnose some connection problems that happened last night.
silentbob’s clock went crazy this morning. The problem seems to have something to do with the Windows time service. Jeremy has disabled that service on all the Windows domain controllers and replaced it with Tardis.
The new Millenium OLAP server was received and put in place in the server room. The machine name will be MAURY, in keeping with the convention of naming database application servers after islands in Puget Sound.
Software installation is scheduled for tomorrow.
