Birmingham suffering from multiple hardware failures

The Babar cluster at Birmingham which is made up of older kit salvaged from QMUL and Bristol plus the original Birmingham cluster, is suffering from h/w problems.
7 worker node disks have died, some systems have kernel panics, and the globus MDS service is playing up. Yves is working hard to fix things but maybe we are just getting to the end of the useful life of much of this kit?
