When I say “don’t touch a running system” I mean it: don’t touch it. Don’t even power it down, because it might not come back up again. Since June 30th of last year, I have a todo in my list concerning the rewrite/redesign of a set of tools that perform synchronization between the Domino directory and our corporate OpenLDAP directory servers. These ran on an ancient Celsius machine powered by a rock-solid RedHat 5.2 Linux. I don’t write “ran” lightly. This afternoon the box was relocated and had to be powered off. Upon restart, the hard disk reacted as if we’d plugged this in to it Crashed
disk It is going to be a long night… :-(
