Status of "Clippers"


#1

After a Thursday of downtime and brief time back up that evening, Friday morning customers with sites on webserver “Clippers” were informed that:

“Due to issues with the RAID controller, we are replacing the hardware for this server and will be restoring all data from our backup server to the new hardware. Currently, we are working on connecting the backup server, and in the meantime you may be experiencing downtime with your websites or may be unable to access your server. We apologize for the inconvenience, and we’ll update this post in the next 30 minutes or as soon as progress is made, whichever is sooner. {this 30 mins can be extended to an hour or more as this goes if we see no fast resolution}”

It has been 22 hours and no mention of this on the official DH Status page? Anyone else on “Clippers”? This is unbelievably frustrating!

They don’t post single server issues on dreamhost status anymore.

Brace yourself, if this goes like most of dreamhost RAID issues you will not be happy for about the next 14 days.

type this into google without the quotes: “site:discussion.dreamhost.com RAID”

you have my sympathy.
