UH head node drive replacement

Reported by: ibaldin Owned by: vjo
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: Infrastructure: Rack hardware Version: baseline
Keywords: Cc: vjo, jonmills


One of the drives failed (in RAID1). Also the logical disk built on the RAID is off-line. Not clear if it will properly operate after the drive is replaced.

First we need to replace the failed disk and see if the logical drive comes back.

Requires opening a ticket with IBM.

Drive is live, however the data is lost due to fsck. Likely due to controller malfunction.

Need to reinstall it.

The head node is being reinstalled using software RAID, since we are no longer confident in the hardware RAID controller.

From Jonathan:

It's now possible, once again, to ssh to uh-hn.exogeni.net and be authenticated by LDAP. The system is puppetized, xCAT has been mostly set up. I need to fine-tune xCAT, and then I can start playing with OpenStack?.

From Jonathan:
UH is once again running OpenStack?. 7 of 8 worker nodes are up, puppetized, and *might* even have correct labels for dataplane ports. (Remember, UH chelsio ports a cable the exact opposite of FIU chelsios; if I could reach FIU, this game would be easy!)

The iSCSI storage is mounted on uh-hn, also.

Remaining items:
-- Imageproxy
-- storage service

VLANs to UH appear to be working.
