Aries Emergency Maintenance / FSCK (06/08/11)

June 8, 2011 at 11:52 AM

11:50AM CST - The Aries server is currently down due to an issue on one of the service partitions causing errors for most dynamic websites. The system is down to run an emergency filesystem check to clear up some journaling issues we were seeing that were the root cause of the error users had seen this morning. We expect the filesystem check process to take around 1 hour and we are monitoring it closely at this time to ensure it completes in a timely manner and to keep updates coming. We apologize for the trouble and inconvenience this may cause for you and your website, and we appreciate your patience as we work through this issue.

12:00PM CST - Judging by the progress of the filesystem check, we expect the Aries server to be back online within 1-2 hours. This is longer than we anticipated but everything is going smoothly thus far and we do not expect any hiccups in the process.

12:52PM CST - Looks like the initial estimate was on target, services should be coming back online within the next few minutes. :)
