AThe main web server was unavailable for approximately 20 minutes at 2:55 PM this afternoon, due to corrupted content caused by a faulty publishing process. Content was restored at approximately 3:15 PM.
Do to the unscheduled extended outage this morning the following servers were affected during the outage (Camano, Grace, Crystal, Rainier, and Whidbey). This temporarily caused Cascade and other services to be unaccessible. The outage was extended from 06:30 am to 08:00 am, all services to these servers are back online and accessible now.
It will be necessary for us to reboot the core router between 5:30-6:00am on 08/27/2009. This will cause the total network to be down during the time it takes the Core Router to reboot. I estimate about 15 minutes. This outage may also cause some servers to require a reboot to come back online. Consequently various services may not be available due to this reboot of the core router. We expect everything to be back to normal by 6:30am the very latest. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Changes to the provisioning system housed in the Cascade database will be installed on 8/20 starting at 5:30 a.m., and it shouldn’t take more than half an hour to finish.
These changes are to support Moodle integration to AD.
Problems with provisioning should be reported to Carol White immediately.

The Millennium database was down this morning for a few hours because the archiver was stuck because the archive logs have not been getting purged like they should.
Space was cleared on the drive so archiving could resume and the database would be accessible again, and we will follow up on the log purging issue so this doesn’t happen again.
