View Full Version : Today's Brief Downtime

Our server used to be briefly down for approximately three hours and just returned about 10 minutes ago.

The reason was a malfunctioning switch. In total, several hundreds of servers were affected. After all attempts to reboot and reconfigure the switch had failed -- it would keep on crashing and not doing its job respectively -- the data center's technicians replaced it with a new piece of hardware, effectively reconnecting all the null-routed machines to the Internet.

We are sorry for any inconvenience the downtime might have caused you.

I in particular hope that the Skadi addicts amongst us didn't suffer from any severe withdrawal symptoms. :fwink:

Thank God I can access Skadi again. Praise be.

There was a brief unavoidable downtime for about 15 mins when we upgraded the operating system (including the kernel) to the most recent version.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
