PubMan Training in Goettingen – 18th of august 2009

Andrea Seesko held another PubMan Training, this time in Goettingen, MPI for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity. Rike and me joined the training, to provide support for the more technical oriented questions.

Presenting and training on the new released PubMan Version 5.0. was an overall experience, and yes…we detected some (minor) bugs;-).

Further information about the SAN storage problems at the end of July

On Tuesday, 21st of July 2009 around 12 o’clock an error in the so called „Fabric“ at the hosting-site of our hosting-partner GWDG happend. The „Fabric“ is the part of the SAN (Storage Area Network) that connect the SAN with the actual servers. When we decided for the hardware to be aquired for the production environment of PubMan we deliberately chose the SAN for storage because a SAN is one of the most secure ways to store data, because it’s eliminating most single points of failure.

PubMan unfortunaltely down again

Due to server problems (SAN storage) at our hosting partner, we had to decide again on a downtime for PubMan.

http://pubman.mpdl.mpg.de/pubman/ is not reachable since 11:00 a.m. We are aware of the critical situation especially for the colleagues, who depend on the data for the website. We are currently trying to reach someone responsible at our hosting partner for trouble shooting, but it seems we will have to wait for Monday.

We are really sorry, we do our best to find a solution. You’ll get informed as soon as the problems are fixed.
