Filed under: Computers, Corporate systems, Network, PC Labs, [Resolved], [Scheduled], [Service Alert] — Colin Phillips @ 4:04 pm

08:25hrs 8th December 2017 – The server has now been rebooted and is back in service.


One of our DNS servers needs to be restarted to clear an issue we have been experiencing with DHCP/DNS requests.  This work is scheduled to take place at 08:00hrs, Friday 8th December 2017.

Whilst the server is being restarted, users may experience longer than usual response times whilst connecting to network services and the internet.

It is anticipated the work will be complete by 08:15hrs.  Further announcements will be made after the work is complete.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
