Hehe. 5 minutes = how long I thought changing a disk on a server takes.

Almost 1 hour and counting = how long it actually takes? Sad

Nice customer support by Hetzner.

Yesterday I made an appointment to get the disk replaced at 18:00 CEST and sent them all info they need. They confirmed.

Today I send emails and get no reply. On phone is endless waiting with music. Finally I get an email at 19:55 saying it was not possible to change the disk at the appointed time. Please make a new appointment.

Sorry, guys, I try to always keep the pool up, but this was out of my control.

Trying to now get the damn server back up again. All this downtime for nothing. Sad

I announced it the day before here and on twitter, and wrote same places when it went down (a few minutes late here, though).

I know 1 day notice isn't long, but I don't like running a degraded raid-1 array longer than necessary.

I also thought changing a disk is quick. I know it is when I do it myself.

so, will it automatically connect when everything is up? I guess at times like this its good to have a backup, lol...

Thanks. Yeah, the website is up and the mining pool backend will be up in a second (bitcoind being slow to start up).

Hum, I just had a drive failure last week, they replaced it with a drive with 63 reallocated sectors and it failed yesterday. Today they removed the remaining good drive, leaving the faulty one in place !
I was quite satisfied until last week: something changed and it's not for the better.

Everything is up and running again as normal.

New appointment to change the disk is 14.09.2012 at 12 CEST. That's friday at 10:00 UTC.

BitMinter will disappear a moment before that and I hope this time will not be gone for so long, and hopefully have a new disk when it boots back up.

Oh. My. God. I'm starting to understand why they are so much cheaper than everyone else.

What is surprising is that for more than 2 years their service was impeccable: drives fail eventually and when this happened they were changed in less than an hour or at an agreed upon appointment. The network connectivity is good too.

I guess they probably have problems with new staff doing hardware interventions.

Hi,

just joined your pool, right after the downtime. Now I cannot mine... worker rpc username/passwd is wrong. I double checked worker name/passwd and even created/deleted new workers. Didn't help. Any thoughts?

If you are the user I think you are then you have the username and workername right but the password wrong. I assume you are using the password you gave the worker on the worker page of the website? Make sure caps lock is off when typing the password, and if you use different keyboard language layouts that this isn't switched wrong. Can't really think of anything else.

Yeah, this happened with an ISP I was using. They were suddenly completely incompetent with lots of downtime. I finally gave up and switched ISP. Crossing my fingers for the disk replacement friday though.

Is your username user.work ? or are you just giving the worker name, bitminter wants username.workername for mining.

Ah you are not the user I thought. Actually there are no failed logins from you in the logs. Perhaps the miner needs http:// in the URL? I haven't tried ztexminer myself.

What error message are you getting, exactly?

gr0bi42_01:xxx -> no getworks

That's the way it should look, although I believe I also made it work with a period instead of the underscore if I remember right, because some pools use that too.

Sadly it doesn't support ztex FPGAs yet. I also don't know if I will have time to add support for them before ASICs are out. Not sure if it will still make sense then, but perhaps.

Actually, BTCMiner from Ztex is writed in Java, if it matters to anyone.
Command should look like:
Code:
btcminer java -cp ZtexBTCMiner-120703.jar BTCMiner -host "http://mint.bitminter.com:8332" -u "username_workername" -p "x"

They put the good disk (serial number verified) back and my arrays are synchronizing. So at least they don't throw disks away or in a big pile of "replacement candidates" when they remove them from your server.
I could have reinstalled this server, it's mostly a drbd slave host, but damn I would have been pissed off.
