We don\'t have down time very often, but for a few hours on the 19th, we were unfortunate enough to experience some. Away on business in Indiana, the Dragon\'s Den
\'s temperature got up to 85F (29C) degrees. This caused the Indigo Dragon to over heat and shutdown. I found out about two hours after this happened and called Zen
. He was good enough to come to Park Place over his lunch break and reset the server. About two hours latter, the server was down again. This time, Zen
helped by setting up Aux. Dragon. After it was booted and SSH ports mapped to it, I was able to rsync it and put the webserver back online. While talking to Zen
, I asked about the temperature in the room. He found the thermometer (which is kinda hidden on a shelf under one of the benches) and reported the room being 85F degrees (29C). The air conditioner had decided to move it\'s set-point from 74F (23C) to 86F (?!). Zen reset this and all servers remained online until my return home. Again, the air conditioner had crept up to over 80F (20C).
This isn\'t the first time this air conditioner has done something like this. Very strange and very, very irritating. The weather outside has been horrible-- days hitting 97F (36C) with 80% humidity. The servers and myself do not enjoy it at all and await the cooler days of the coming fall and winter.
We really appreciate the help of Zen
on this one-- things could have been much worse if he hadn\'t come to the rescue. Thankx Zen!
