Adelie (formerly known as mars) is a Penguin Computing Altus Server residing in the CSL machine room, currently serving as an AFS fileserver, primarily for the main TJ website. Adelie used to host the TJ website, but this service has been moved to a VM.
|Server Type||Hardware type::Penguin Computing Altus Server|
|CPU||AMD Athlon(tm) MP 1900+|
|Hard Disks||35.3GB SCSI Hardware RAID-5|
|OS||Debian GNU/Linux Testing|
Adelie's drives utilize a hardware RAID-5 setup with a MegaRAID card. If you hear a slow beeping in the machine room, it is most likely the MegaRAID card alerting you to a failed drive. You can use the megamgr utility to rebuild the failed drive (located in
/root/megaraid/megamgr as of the time of this writing). You can also add another drive as a hot spare to keep the old drive in, but use another drive to rebuild the array. Currently, the drive in ID 1 keeps failing, so a new drive in ID 3 is being used as a hot spare.
