Message 5640 - Posted: 21 Feb 2020, 22:17:51 UTC

Due a windows 10 bluescreen, cant identify yet whats causing this crashed the project database and cant be recovered. The old backup from 02.02. was resetup.

All new users or hosts after this date need to be registered again. Pls stop all the current work. I will see what I can do to rescue the old work and upload the missing files.

With this new OS I cant believe it. As long as I cant find the issue Iam lost. Trying to readout the dump file to be sure to fix this main problem.

Sorry for all the troubles.

I have added a script to backup the database manually (if no work is uploading) once a day. On this PCI4 M2 its taking <20s for 16GB max

Looking at the server status page I can see there are only long WUs available. Is it safe to crunch or should we wait for everything to go back to normal?

Everything on the server status page shows Ubuntu as the OS, why is there a Windows point of failure at all? Windows 10, is it a LTS build? I don't like running Win10 on my desktop, but I also play games that will not run on Linux.

How much work was lost? What was the cost of trusting MS?
Giving the hardware a pass may be wrong, but I'm assuming we're running on enterprise gear, that may be a false assumption on my part.

Ubuntu is the Guest (running in VMware under windows10) I need both systems. A VM can be moved to another place too.

Ah I see, might be worth exploring a solution that removes Win10 from the Ubuntu chain. The loss is unfortunate but as long as it's a learning experience and some best practices are implemented with backups, hindsight is 20/20.

Thanks for being transparent about the project.

Could you do it the other way around, make Windows the guest of the Ubuntu system?

Or run VMware ESXi as bare metal hypervisor with the Ubuntu VM and then Windows also in a VM?

Glad to see you didn't get into useless war about Linux vs Windows.
