|z_gryphon||08:27 pm - Looks like we're back online.|
The verdict (according to the phone call I just got from ninjarat): power problems at zonereyrie's plus dead CMOS battery in the server equals "boot disk? What boot disk?" (Compounding the confusion: there was another server in that room labeled "rei" that was not, in fact, rei. That's my fault. I didn't take the label off the previous rei when she was decommissioned, what, five years ago.)
Mad props to usagijer and solipsistnation for getting things working again.
Current Mood: grateful

it was Ni who had the dead CMOS battery. and Ni who had the clever disguise sticker.
Rei powered off for the power blip, and never powered herself back on. (memo to Zoner: take a maint, boot her to BIOS, and have her Power On when power returns)
I dimly remember that when we got that hardware, we tried that and determined that it doesn't have a BIOS setting to do that. But that was a long time ago and I may be misremembering.
Yeah, I dimly recall that too. I can check again sometime to be sure though. Still thinking of moving Rei/EPU to a new box?
You know I JUST thought of the misleading labels and was about to leave a comment to the last exchange telling you about that. It is something I don't normally think about, since I'm so used to it. Oops. :-)
I guess the power was out long enough to drain the UPS and Rei didn't recover.
Uh, that label has been moved now. Just so you know. 8)
Probably for the best. ;-)
