I have been informed by the datacenter that one of the drives in the RAID array of our forum server has failed and needs to be replaced.

To replace the drive the server needs to be powered down, which obviously will cause some downtime. If the replacement goes well the downtime should not take all that long (about an hour max I figure) but after the server is back up the RAID array needs to be rebuild which may cause performance degradation for some time.

I've not received the precise time the drive will be replaced yet from the datacenter, but I'll update this thread when I know more.

(In the mean while I've run a backup so that if anything goes catastrophically wrong there should not be much data loss)

Update

The drive replacement is now scheduled for 3 am PDT on May 27 (Sunday).

This is 12:00 (noon) CET (European time) and 11:00 am GMT (UK time).

As previously indicated if all goes well the downtime should be minimal, but any complications could extend the downtime.

FYI

The drive replacement has been completed and (as you can see) the forum is back up.

Performance degradation due to RAID array rebuild appears to be minimal.
