Grumble grumble grumble. Last week my server… an actual physical box… locked up. And it locked up again… and today… again. Specifically seems to be disk-related. Unfortunately, nothing useful on the console or in logs. Then again… logs wouldn’t have anything if IO stops completely. At this point I’m not sure if it is something odd with a specific disk or further up the chain. No matter… the hardware is old and is need of replacement. I am moving essential services… mainly primary dns… off the machine. I have pretty much everything worth saving backed up elsewhere. Now the difficult part… acquring replacement hardware. It would be nice to have something that supports all the recent VM-related processor extensions so I can run actual VMs on the box.
