Cascade Web Unplanned Downtime

Cascade Web came down 3/26 at 4:40pm following a restart of the Apache server to restore the use of Banner and Famis to the camano server which had been running on a backup server since Friday.  Cascade Web was unable to start following this reboot and remained down until 10:30pm. 

Other components of the Application Server including Discoverer and Portal remain down as of 8:15am on 3/27.

CRM Down 1/19
