GeneralThe strange case of the missing file structure Pin
ChrisElston15-Oct-12 5:23
memberChrisElston15-Oct-12 5:23 
We use Progress for some of our systems, the DBs, code, and various log files, scripts and other stuff lives on a UNIX box.

On the dev box, which is also the test box, there is a /ourapps directory, then a dev and tst directory, then a directory for each app which has many directories underneath containing the above stuff.

This morning I got an email from a monitoring system we've set-up to say that one of the DBs was down, I'm not directly working on it so just ignored it.

Just found out that from the dev who is working on this system, working towards a major release at the end of the month, that the reason the monitory system reported his DB as being down is that it wasn't just down, but missing. In fact the entire directory structure for this app was missing.

The opps in charge of these servers claim to have done nothing at all, and this series of directories has simply disappeared.

Not entirely sure I believe that.
