Server crash yesterday, auchhh!
Have a Xen server OES2018, which holds several VM's
Have ISCSI drives on our NAS, which holds the data for our Groupwise system.
I give the total ISCI drive to the VM : so /dev/sdd and the VM has its NSS POOL and Volume on it.
Now the server itself crashed, causing all VM's to crash.
But when getting back up, somehow messed up the drive letters.
so the Groupwise system used to be /dev/sdd, but it changed to /dev/sdc !
Of course when booting up the VM, (which is on OES2015 fully patched) I could not see the NSS drive.
It took my a while to figure that out. So rebooting several times.
Now I have connected the correct drive, I still cannot see the NSS.
I cannot connect to the pool using nssmu, as it just hangs.
Cannot see anything about the pool in imanager, as this errors out.
But the VM's processors are running full speed. So i guessed it was auto-re-building of sorts, and let it sit overnight.
Now still nothing.
Our Groupwise system is small, max 10 users, only 5 Gb of Data or something.
- Questions :
Can the VM is still rebuilding NSS ? Or does it just hang ?
How long should a rebuild like this normally take ?
I have seen some info about ravsui, but it cannot seems to access the disc.
