2005-08-29: Hardware failure on Shinji

There seems to be a little problem with the wiring in Shinji, causing the hard drive to stop and producing the ugliest kinds of I/O errors ever. The box had to be restarted a few times. New power wires are being tested currently. The alimentation block might be changed if the problem persists.

2005-08-17: Shinji's upgrade

Shinji went offline for a few hours, during which most of its hardware was upgraded, as well as its software. Due to some minor trouble with the new kernel and network interfaces, it took longer than planned and the server was down for about six hours. It's running fine, now, and will hopefully beat its own record of 280 days up and running. Though few resources are hosted on Shinji anymore, we still apologize for that downtime and any potential inconvenience it caused.

2005-04-13: Amen Networks (Massive) Failure

Due to a massive failure of Amen hardware, their servers were unavailable for a couple hours today, including Hisoka. Situation is back to normal now. More details (in french) from the Amen website:

Bonsoir

Comme vous avez pu le constater, nous avons du faire face à de multiples incidents aujourd'hui. La plupart des problèmes n'ont impacté que notre propre plateforme : site AMEN, espace client, notre intranet, ce qui explique que nous n'ayons pas pu vous fournir d'informations plus tôt.
Nous avons aussi eu une panne réseau en fin d'après midi : nos routeurs sont tombés les uns après les autres. Cela a impacté l'ensemble de notre reseau et donc la plupart des sites hebergés chez nous.

Notre équipe d'ingénieurs s'est mobilisée toute la journée pour résoudre les problèmes les uns après les autres. Cependant, certaines corrections faites dans l'urgence on eu pour effet de bord de déclencher d'autres problèmes, prolongeant d'autant l'indisponibilité de notre plateforme.

A l'heure actuelle, tous les problèmes ont été corrigés, et l'ensemble de nos équipements est à nouveau opérationnel.

Nous renouvelons nos excuses pour la gène occasionnée, et nous vous remercions pour votre compréhension.

L'équipe AMEN

2005-04-03: Moving out!

We moved! Thanks to our new familial sponsor, we could afford an external server. Hisoka is now online and running, and we are slowly mirroring accounts over from Shinji. There is still work to do to set up global configuration. Logging to existing accounts might not work for a little while. Currently hosted websites should not be affected and will keep running smoothly.

Due to a general upgrade of installed packages including mysql-server, some PHP scripts and websites were unavailable for a few minutes around 19:00 while the deamon was stopped and config files updated.
