  • 2010-07-08:  Firefly /work space unavailable (again)
    Category:  System Failure

    Firefly's /work space is once again unavailable. Our storage system lost a storage blade and the system preemptively took the /work volume offline to prevent further issues.

    We are working with our storage vendor to resolve this issue.

  • 2010-07-08:  Firefly /work space is available.
    Category:  System Failure

    This is related to the announcement that was sent out July 2, 2010 with the subject "Firefly Panasas" and the notification earlier today.

    The /work volume became available again shortly after I had sent out the offline notification.

    We are still working with our storage vendor to resolve this issue. A long term software patch should be available within the next week.
