6/3 – Database Systems Temporarily Offline

The database systems went offline sometime of 3 June this weekend when rainier and crystal lost connections to several disk volumes. The disks were remounted, and the databases were restarted. The DBA was called at 9 AM this morning.

The www2 webserver also became unresponsive because it lost connection to the database. The webserver was restarted once the database came online, restoring service.
