Earlier a client with a fairly complex network setup had a power outage in one of their data centers in Dallas, TX. The power outage caused three servers and a firewall to lose power causing all sorts of other issues on the servers themselves. One of the primary issues was getting the PostgreSQL cluster back in 100% operational.
Last night I was working on upgrading the BIOS on an older Dell Poweredge 650 that I have been using as a PostgreSQL development server. One of the CD’s I needed to create is downloaded from Dell as two parts of an ISO file that needed to be combined so below is information on how to combine the files using the Windows copy command.
