Today.....the day finally came.
After a debacle last week, our servers at work, and the inventory that they "lost" are now fixed.
Not happy with the new servers that we put into use only a couple months ago.
We were told that there was no way what happened could happen. Then it actually happened...and they said "oh, well that's impossible", until they came and saw it for their self.
To put it simply, the servers are mirrored, also backed up on drives, plus backed up on a tape drive. Well, when the main server had an issue in one tiny ass file and something was wrong, there was no way to get the other server to take over operations because it DIDN'T HAVE THE SAME MESSED UP FILE and saw that as something wrong. Ummm, that's the whole point of being mirrored for the programs we use. Of course, the last 2 backups that were automatically made were worthless. So after 4 days of being completely dead, we ended up having to go back a full day before it went down. Lost in total about 4 days worth of info, including all payroll, inventory, invoicing, and any other paperwork that would be done in that time period.
Countless hours of overtime, fixing this, and fixing that, I am done for the week...about damn time.
