Emergency Downtime of Mail Server

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2015

We had to shut down the D-PHYS mail server on short notice for replacing faulty hardware. Mail service should be back in the evening.

Mails sent to D-PHYS during the downtime will be on hold on the sending side.

Update, 19:30: The dust is settling. We’re soon back to normal.

Hardware failure – again

Tuesday, October 6th, 2009

Today at 09:50 a crucial server died in our HIT server room. It took us about 20 min to move the affected services to other machines, during which time most of our machines weren’t usable. We’re sorry for the inconvenience. We’re working hard to get rid of this fault-prone hardware.
