labstore1001,1002,2001,2002: status clarification
Open, LowPublic

Description

labstore1001,1002,2001,2002 all have role::spare in puppet and are marked ACTIVE in Netbox:

The servers are currently racked and powered on, but apparently serving no purpose.
This seems like an inconsistency according to https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Server_Lifecycle

A status clarification should probably be done. My initial feeling is that these server should be powered off and unracked.

Same for labstore2002

aborrero closed this task as Resolved.
aborrero lowered the priority of this task from Normal to Lowest.

This is probably related to procurement ticket {T210666}, in which:

  • labstore2001 (spare)
  • labstore2002 (spare)
  • labstore2003 (tools backup from labstore1004/1005)
  • labstore2004 (misc backup from labstore1004/1005)

Are all being replaced by a couple of servers:

  • cloudbackup2001
  • cloudbackup2002

(replacement names are just proposals)

Reopening because I would like to clarify what are we going to do with them, to make it consistent with https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Server_Lifecycle

aborrero renamed this task from labstore2001 & labstore2002: status clarification to labstore1001,1002,2001,2002: status clarification.Jan 28 2019, 5:09 PM
aborrero updated the task description. (Show Details)
aborrero moved this task from Graveyard to Inbox on the cloud-services-team (Kanban) board.
aborrero raised the priority of this task from Lowest to Low.

The have been keeping labstore1001 and labstore1002 around as cold spares for labstore1003. Labstore1003 will be replaced by T209527: Set up scratch and maps NFS services on cloudstore1008/9. See also T187456: Decommission labstore100[123] and their disk shelves.

The labstore200[1-4] will all be decommissioned when we have bought 2 new cloudstore boxes to replace their duty as offsite backup for the NFS servers ({T210666}).

And yes, this is all confusing and not documented in a single, easy to find place.

Ok, thanks for the clarification.

Then, I believe these servers should have the INVENTORY (instead of ACTIVE) status on Netbox. Could you @RobH please confirm?
