Re: Day of issues



fixed

I thought the theory behind having mirrored DNS servers and disk drives was
that you could fall back to one if the other were to fail. Well, a nice
theory ;-)

Since the statistical probability of both instances failing together is
just about NIL, I suppose that means that in your case both instances rely
on some external dependency - which failed?

I know this should be on a different post, but wanted to share this.

1) Early this morning, scheduled Windows updates took much longer than
expected, both DNS servers were down at the same time, no DNS, results not
good.
2) Early this afternoon, scheduled reboot of IVR for Windows update, both
mirrored hard drives failed on reboot, results also not good.

Can't wait till the day is over.

Thank You
