As you probably figured out, the server was down for 8 hours. I went to bed at 4am with it working fine and woke up at 11am to see it dead. I was kicking and screaming to get my server administration team to do anything. Of course, 3 different times today I heard, "Your server is up and running" just to click on the site and nothing come up. ARRRRHHHH.
It's obvious that my problems didn't mean a whole lot to them. That's why I pay them $1,400 per year to do maybe an hour of work.
I don't get too upset when the 16 year old pregnant girl at McDonald's is in no particular hurry and doesn't seem to give a damn if I get what I pay for. I expect that from fast food (and that's why I don't willingly eat it). I don't expect it from educated dudes who are paid well. I'm not happy. I'll be looking for a new service.
What pissed me off the most is no one gave me a real explanation as to why the server was having problems.
Oh!!! That explains everything ....except why it happened and why it won't happen again.To avoid further problems, we have permanently disabled the
networkManager and enable only the network:
This year has been one constant kick in the face after another. I can't seem to get a break. I'm going to get superstitious (like all desperate people do) and pretend that 2011 is cursed. I can't wait for 2012 to begin.
