As perhaps you've already noticed, our forum is slower and during next days it may be offline due to the power situation at the server farm (in Texas, USA, owned by the company named The Planet.)
On Saturday, May 31st, in their H1 data center, there was an electrical explosion in the underground conduit that brings utility power into the data center. The explosion and electrical fire damaged, beyond repair, the electrical gear where the utility service enters the building as well as the transfer switch and main distribution panel that feeds the first floor of the data center. They have been working to replace the electric equipment.
No servers were damaged. But, for a while, many had no power.

Many servers are requiring OS Reloads, power supply swaps, chassis swaps. We also had a VLAN configuration issue where the VLAN configuration of many servers were lost that we had to work with network engineering to resolve. All our Level 1 techs are knocking out the reboots, and anything that takes less than 5 mins. The rest we're escalating to our Level 2s to handle as they can get more complex and they're trained enough to handle those fairly quickly.
