      Description

      I put WMWare as component, maybe Other/Misc was enough...

      It's the same issue that I reported on infra ML the 2013-08-12:

      Just got this trying to reset our demoes on OFBiz VM

      $ sudo -s -u ofbiz -H
      [sudo] password for jleroux:
      sudo: Can't open /var/lib/sudo/jleroux/0: Read-only file system


      Tony resolved it the 14th

        To be more clear this is blocking OFBiz demos (of course they need to write on disk), thanks!

        Thanks Gavin!

        What was the reason? Are there possibilities this will come again?

        Only thing we can narrow it down to currently is the host of the VM, Erebus. When the host becomes overwhelmed with disk I/O it reponds by protecting 1 or more VMs, sending them into read only mode, enabling the rest of the VMs to perform. It affects different VMs on Erebus at differing times, unsure how it chooses a victim, probably the one doing the most I/O at the time it goes over a certain threshold.

        The workaround is a reboot of the VM and a fsck -y , the cure is something we need to work on the host itself.

        OK, thanks Gavin. OFBiz has indeed its good part of I/O, since we use a local Derby DB for each instance. Hope you will find a solution at the machine level. Note: we never encountered this issue before mid August.

        Fixed again, if this occurs once more I'll move it to another host.

        Ok I'm migrating this to a new host. Should take an hour or two.

        Migrated to Nyx, also took the opportunity to upgrade the OS to 12.04
