Issues resolved

14/4/24 9:00am

Necessary works have been carried out to introduce a new domain controller during a scheduled outage between 6 and 9am this morning.

10/4/24 9:55am

We made the decision to demote and de-commission the primary domain controller which continues to misbehave.

We believe services to be returned now that the alternate domain controller is promoted.

10/4/24 8:30am

 

We are doing everything in our power to keep all services operational, however our primary domain controller remains temperamental.

 

CDS is attempting to cope with the system "as is" until the bigger issues for this server can be dealt with on the weekend (recognising that many of you are burning the midnight oil to get your submissions in).

All back end processes remain fully functional, even though there may continue to be some interruptions affecting logging in.

We will continue to advise on the home page IF the controller fails to co-operate, and hope any downtime is minimal.

We will continue to closely manage the situation and apologise for any inconvenience experienced.

A reboot of the primary authentication server caused a relapse of the issue experienced earlier today.

We apologise for the interruption to services, and we are closely watching the behaviour of the impacted systems as we ascertain the initial cause.

System outage 8/4/24 10:38pm to 9/4/24 11:08am

A corruption was experienced in the authentication server that prevented access to the application environment.

We are further investigating the root cause of the outage, but are fairly certain that the chain of events were probably not sinister in nature and that there is no impact to data and/or integrity of the systems. 

We apologise for the interruption to services, and we are closely watching the behaviour of the impacted systems as we ascertain the initial cause.
