dalstorage3 kernel panic

Posted at: 14th January 2015 - 01:20

We have faced yet another kernel panic on dalstorage3. The server is rebooting.

We are going to send a replacement for this server and migrate the data.

Update: The server is offline. We are working on a solution.

Update: The server was keep rebooting itself. We are thinking that this was due to half applied patches by Kernel care. The last kernel has been reinstalled to avoid this issue. We are hoping this would resolve the problems on this node.

Update: Unfortunately, this looks like an hardware issue. We are going to have to replace the mainboard and the memory of this server, since it can't stay online.

Update: We're still working through the situation. We're working to boot the system so that we can disable the VM filesystem, and then remove one of the hardware components that seems to be causing issues.

Update: We have replaced the motherboard, CPUs and the memory on the server. After doing fsck 3 times which took around 20 hours alone, the server has booted and is currently booting the VPS's.

dalstorage4 failure, replacement

Posted at: 8th January 2015 - 08:09

08:09: Our dalstorage4 storage server is being rebooted for a filesystem check. This announcement will be updated when complete.

08:55: This didn't go quite as planned. We are working the situation and will provide more information when we can.

09:17: All clients on this server have been emailled the following:



We are writing to you because you have active service on our "dalstorage4" server.

The reason for the message is to inform you of a disk controller or disk error with this server. This morning, the file system began throwing egregious errors. In an effort to salvage the situation, we rebooted the server to run fsck on the VM partition, only to discover that the disk array is no longer readable, and that fsck is throwing an error that every block is unreadable. Unfortunately, at this juncture it appears that your data is lost.

At this point, we've shipped a replacement server, which will be online tomorrow afternoon, relative to the United States.

We're offering two options:

1. We can recreate your VM tomorrow on the new server, and provide you with a full two months of credit for the issue.

2. We can provide a full refund back to your payment method.

Please note that we're unable to recover your data, and please do not open tickets regarding that. This has been a hard decision that we did not take lightly, and every effort has already been made to fully recover your data.

Please open a ticket with your choice, and if you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to task.

Thank you for your understanding,
-VPSDime Team

lapure2 is having hardware issues

Posted at: 12th December 2014 - 05:46

lapure2 is having network hardware issues. We are investigating.

Update 7:36 AM: No updates, yet.

Update 8:35 AM: Turns out the onboard network port was faulty. We are using the other port and network is now stable. The server is currently booting. Your VPS's should be online in the next 15 minutes.

Update 8:39 AM: We are still investigating the packet loss issue.

Update 9:17 AM: The issue is resolved.

Here is the RFO:

The issue started with a major packet loss on this node. We couldn't even get into the shell to check.

First, we have suspected a DDoS attack and alerted our datacenter. They told us that there was no attack.

Then we've gotten them to replace our cables as well as their cables to the top of the rack switch. This has not solved the problem.

Then we've gotten them to swap the network cable to the other ethernet port. Unfortunately, this has not solved the problem, either.

After eliminating the hardware issues, we have started to troubleshoot the issue (very slowly, due to the high load caused by the attack!) on the IPMI console further. And then we have realized that there was indeed an attack on one of the IPs which our DC failed to recognize.

We have nullrouted the target IP manually and the packet loss issue is gone.

Your VPS is currently up and running.

We are terribly sorry for the downtime this has caused you and we want to make it up to you. Please open a ticket to redeem $5 credit on your account for the trouble.
