Server Operation and Maintenance
The goal with SystemWeaver is to offer 24/7 continuous operations. A key to this is the proper configuration and operation of installed servers. Note that although much of the operation and maintenance procedures can be automated, the operation organization must be alert for problems that may occur due to problems in the operating environment. Some of these problems are likely to be detected by users and the operating organization should therefore have continuous support available at all times when there are users active. An example is when a SystemWeaver server computer is shut down by mistake during operation. Other problems may not be possible to detect by users until it is too late. The operating organization should define procedures to avoid such problems. An example is when the storage used for database backups runs out of storage space, which may cause back-up copies to be lost.
