For the last 2 days I have been at work since 0400 hrs.! It sucks!
In a nutshell, one of our servers went pop on Monday and the techies managed to get everything working except SQL replication. Now setting this back up should not usually cause a problem but since the database has grown since the last time I re-initialised replication there is now insufficient space to hold the snapshots that I need. Therefore I needed to replicate the tables one at a time.
Of course I didn't discover this space issue until 0840 on Wednesday when the attempt at replicating the whole job lot failed spectacularly and I discovered that I'd wasted almost 5 hours of my life that I'm never gonna get back again.
So that was it - Back in today at 0400 to do it properly (well one at a time) this time!
What are the odds of 2 raided hard drives failing at the same time....?
