Yes. One or more of those fancy blade servers that Navisite is running is down. No further info has been provided except for that comforting message, "Our engineers are working on this right now". I'm comforted and I hope you are too. :evil:

I thought they had redundancy? Thought that was the reason for the change in platform.

Where's it at? Please don't tell me still in the box.

I got that too.. I assumed it was related to the ticket I opened regarding the Naviview not working very well, or the ticket about my DSM which has been down quite a bit this week.

It's just weird, my DSM is down but my clients web pages are up, and I think the email is working fine...
I have a friend with another server on Alabanza and his service went down about 30 minutes ago and nothing is working.

Maybe that's it... not IN the same box, but ON the same box. the redundancy is SO redundant that IT'S ON THE SAME BLADE. Wheeeee!

UPDATE: My DSM and one machine appear to be on the blade in question. My physical machine and service to another machine on a different blade is wonky, but I am able to connect to all services on those two machines. My primary DNS is on the machine that's on the dead blade. Just sharing what I'm seeing...

Redundancy works for hardware but not for software problems. If a driver is kaflooey, all of the [redundant] hardware will be kaflooey too.

Unfortunately, we are on the affected blade server, and NaviSite does not have an ETA and neither do they have any idea yet on what caused it to go down. :evil:

ALL of our servers are on the affected hardware apparently. Except the DSM which is oddly up, but slow as molasses. So much for the reliability, and stability, and "if one goes down, they don't all go down" crap.

Yep our DSM is down, but websites are still up. When will it all end?

Our one virtual server is down but the old dual pIII box is doing just fine -- oops no control panels there either, and no DSM.

I did not get the email (I never do)

I am forwarding every letter of complaint from clients to Adrian and Charles. I'm tired of not getting information in a timely fashion. They need to hear from all of us over and over about their lack of communications. They need to understand how important information is to us because it is the one thing that we have to provide to our clients that might salvage the account.

I would suggest you do the same.

Arf,

I believe to be now the hated client in Nasviste, I write them 5 times per day, documenting the bad of the NOC, of the support, in fact I don't know that to make more, good I know it probable I don't sign the new contract that they offer me although there are economic advantages I prefer to go to another ISP to pay more and to be calm.

oki.... you should really check out LW, they are in fect cheaper and based on our experience much more responsive. and they (for the most part) teach me to fish. If they fix something they tellme what they fixed and how they fixed it so next time i try to fix myself.

I agree. I called their support twice on Saturday setting up my name servers and I was stunned when I got off the phone both times at how easy it was to get answers. There a whole big world out there of less cost, better support and even more automation.

Thank you, but I go to Peer1, I have servers windows there for 4 years and never had failed the NOC, I have an AM (Michael Rivera) that is a marvel and I had offered a solution more economic and modern , that I have at the moment in Navisite.


I request him 10 server, and he offered me a special price, and I don't need to even pay the 10 serrvers, I can request a server at the same time until migration all the Websites

Guys and Gals - run! Now is the time. They are sinking a ship that was already calling Mayday. When they realize the Ala clients arent making them money, they will just cut their losses and sell you all off again, probably to some "D" rated company as no "A" rated company would be interested in taking on their nightmare. Its going to happen. RUN!

Does anyone have an accurate count of DSM owners before and after the migration? Just off the top of my head, I know of 30 people that have left, including some of our clients, fellow Alahosts and others that I have read about on various chats. Its dwindling down to nothing - and that is when they will throw in the towel.

My own rough estimate based on conversations with other hosts, LiquidWeb, HostWorks, migration coordinators, even cPanel is that as of 11/30 roughly 1/3 of the hosts (not servers - companies) had moved or were in the process of moving, the majority to LiquidWeb. Is this official? Of course not. I haven't talked to everyone, but I did keep notes for a while of who was going and where (if it was disclosed).
