Oh and by the way, we’re having trouble with the backups. That is pretty much how my day began on my first day back from vacation. I did spend most of the morning going through the 6000 or so emails that I had received while I was away. Which of course meant that I did not spend a lot of time of the backup troubles. I did delve into it somewhat in the afternoon, but nothing much seemed to come out of it.
So of course now it is 1:15am and I am baby-sitting the backups because they are still having trouble. I think we can rule out the DNS problems as only two (maybe 3) servers seem to have the problem; the other 4 servers (or 3?) seem to be working just fine. The killing of processes that I have been doing over the last while seems to help; either that or the real problem just disappeared coincidentally.
I think it is time for me to go to bed.
