Hard Drive Failure

Filed under: Uncategorized — mikesdump @ 6:55 am

Argh! It looks like I’m about to experience my first hard drive
failure. I noticed the other day that my DNN site wasn’t working. I
checked the error and first it was complaining something in the
web.config (I hadn’t changed anything). Then I started getting some
really strange SQL Server errors. After investigating the errors it
said it was most likely a sign of failing hardware. I checked the event
log and there were some paging errors when trying to read from one of
my drives… that can’t be good.

I managed to get my Community Server and DNN databases backed up (only
DNN gave me grief). I finally just dropped my DNN db and restored from
backup and it appears to be ok… for the time being. Oh well, it’s
time to upgrade that computer anyway.
