So around 1pm today, the NOC at Radiant Networks in Deep Creek went down. We still don’t know why. Around 1:45, two of our four servers came back online. There was no power outage, as the machines uptime couters are both up for months. So one of two things happened:
1. A denial of service attack or the worm struck. We don’t know. The mail server could have been effected, but that’s the only windows box that we use up there (it’s a shared box). The database box is bsd, so it shouldn’t have been affected at all. We’re not sure why that went unresponsive, but that is why various sites that we host are halfway online (e.g. meticulous.com, nancies.org, ontaponline.com, etc).
2. A line issue with AT&T (the fiber provider there) or the router. This is possible, since it’s only certain machines that haven’t come back.
Anyway, we’re trying to get in touch with one of the owners. One of them is in Vancouver on vacation, so it’s a bit difficult. So just an FYI, we’re working on it and as soon as we have an idea, we’ll let you know.
