Network connectivity restored at 06:22 AEST
April 30th, 2006 06:22 AET

We apologise for the extended outage.

A problem arose in an Optus switch after the scheduled power outage. Optus tried to reset the switch remotely, but it would not hold a connection for longer than a few minutes. A local Optus technician was paged and attended our premises to install a temporary replacement.

Unfortunately, this was outside Ilisys’ control.

Install new UPS backup power system

All services

Early on Sunday morning, we will install a new UPS backup power system into our data-centre. This new system offers increased capacity and functionality over our current UPS and will work in conjunction with our existing diesel generator.

A brief power outage is required to make the final UPS connection, and hence all servers must be shutdown and restarted.
