Hi Doug

Thanks a lot for your answer.

Seems like it's really a hardware problem. We are currently restoring to
another machine/disk and hopefully this will do the trick. Unfortunately
we are not yet able to move to 6.3 (or even 7.0) because of a third
party application which runs on this server and which does only support
6.2 atm.
