Co-Lo Stability Problems

Unfortunately, our co-lo had some stability problems Friday morning.

First up, they lost all of their connectivity to the facility that holds all of our games. This took them about 40 minutes to diagnose and a bit longer to restore.

Much more astonishingly, they rebooted all of their machines (which means all of our machines) while they were fixing the problem, with no notice. This probably had minimal repercussions on the SkotOS games (Marrach, Ironclaw, Lazarus, and Lovecraft). There may have been a rollback of an hour or two.

TEC and Grendel's Revenge are more troublesome. TEC will suffer a rollback of 10 hours, to midnight (PT) last night, since the unannounced reboot happened one hour before the next backups. GR suffered a more complete failure. We're being forced to restore the entire machine from its backups, then we'll need to restore the game from the backups stored within that backup. The lineup of dates look promising (which is how we laid them out, 'lo these many years ago), so the hope is that we'll only suffer a 7 hour rollback, to the 3am (PT) game backup, but it's a bit dicey at the moment.

Apologies for the inconvenience; we're now making sure everything is stable, and we're looking into whether our most recent upgrades to TEC will support increasing the backups to every 6 hours.

Edit: The GR problem is proving even more intractable than hoped. As best I can tell, our colo is still having some issues because I can't boot the first restore I made of GR and I can't build a new node either. I expect this will just clear when they get their act together, but in the meantime I'm not able to get GR back online until they fix these problems.

  • Erealite/Soldier of Ereal

    Aren't Erealites different than Soldiers of Ereal? I read a lot of lore a few months back, and now I can't seem to find any of it. There's a lot of history behind it, and I do remember at least that there are two distinct groups.

    Anyone know or have a link to the lore I mysteriously read?

    Erealites are the general term for those who worship Ereal. Soldiers of Ereal are a part of the Cult of Ereal (kinda) who in turn run the Republic's religious buildings, ceremonies, and etc.

    ?sects and ?religion are good spots to look.

      Not sure what link you are talking about, but yes they are different. All Soldiers of Ereal are Erealites, but not all Erealites are Soldiers of Ereal.

      The best example I can think of is:
      Calling someone an Erealite is like calling them a Christian.

      Calling someone a Soldier of Ereal is like calling them a member of the Lambs of Christ (a militant Christian group in the U.S.)
