Re: IT errors at PFD

It is apparent from the description of the event that except for the hard errors, the problems resulted from human error. It also appears that the procedures were adequately changed to prevent a repeat performance... My only question is why weren't all the LUNs backed up before rebinding? The manual/partial backup of the raid partitions when the virtual drives could not be specifically mapped to the LUNs should have indicated the need for a full database backup prior to the rebind (or any component replacement of the raid).

Yea, I been there... Live and learn.
