SharePoint Service currently at risk – users may see errors

Filed under: SharePoint, [Resolved], [Service Alert] — Sharon Steeples @ 1:38 pm

14.37 UPDATE

The reboot seems to have resolved the problems that had been reported. We believe that the SharePoint Service is no longer at risk. However, investigations into the underlying cause are ongoing.

If users are still experiencing issues, please refresh your browser first, and if the issue persists, report it to as soon as possible.

Thank you for you patience.


14.00 UPDATE

We need to reboot the SharePoint farm boxes. Regrettably this may result in a few minutes of complete SharePoint downtime. This interruption is regretted.
We will wait until 14:10pm to start reboots.


We are currently experiencing issues with the Central Administration service for all SharePoint sites. Users may see intermittent errors, or lose service completely.

The SharePoint Team are investigating with all urgency.

Updates to follow.
