Just when you thought everything was going swimmingly, with months and months of uninterrupted uptime you get a minor technical glitch, specifically:
May 22 11:03:04 server kernel: EXT3-fs warning (device sda3): ext3_unlink:
Deleting nonexistent file (17187990), 0
And it takes 9 hours to do a 15 minute repair job, gah.
After which SQL throws up a heap of errors needing repairing, while at the same time you’re trying to manage (well, observer and prod tech team) transfer and upgrades over another couple of servers.
The only good thing about today has been that it’s a Sunday (Saturday night to the rest of the world).
And the great big irony is that it all comes the night before…
