Issues

This section may be out of date.

  • It seems as if Port #2 is faulty on the 3ware card. It keeps failing randomly in hardware and software RAID configurations.
  • Something causes Emperor to crash frequently, though the problem occurs less often when more RAM is added. Nobody has any idea what the issue is, however, /proc/cpuinfo only shows two CPUs even though the Penguins have a pair of hyperthreaded CPUs (so there should be 4 CPUs there).
