What this means and what do you need to do:
1) Please do not make any changes to your website until the restore process has completed.
2) Please make sure that you have downloaded all of your email to your desktop computer even if you only use the webmail interface. If you are using IMAP, please make sure that all email in the INBOX AND SENT FOLDER is moved to the local portion of your mail programs computer. This insures that you do not loose the email of to this point in the IMAP and SMTP area.
3) Please turn off email checking starting Friday after 7:30pm Pacific Time as the email server will not respond during the restore.

On 06/14/2016 at 6:07 AM CST, while switching between redundant power sources for a scheduled maintenance at Dal05 server room 02, PDU4 encountered an issue which resulted in momentary loss of power. PDU4 supplies power to a subset of racks in server room 2 and only those racks were negatively impacted. Tech Operations personnel were immediately notified and building management proceeded to back out of the maintenance. Power was restored within minutes and at this time a majority of bare metal dedicated servers are back online. Tech support staff is working to restore service to a handful of bare metal systems that require more in depth troubleshooting. Support Data Inc is still working to restore service to all customer VSIs. Building management and equipment vendors are on site investigating the root cause of the issue encountered by PDU4. Currently, PDU4 is stable and operating in a bypass state. No additional work will be performed on electrical equipment until the root cause of this issue is ascertained.
Update: Support Data Inc continues to restore all customer VSIs. A majority of customer VSIs are online and support staff is working to resolve a handful of customer VSIs that are still offline.
Update: Building management is close to reaching a conclusion on the root cause for the event. Support Data Inc is coordinating to incorporate this into the RCA as soon as it is available.
Update: PDU4 remains stable and is operating in a bypass state until further details are available from the root cause investigation. Support Data Inc is coordinating with building management to complete a formal RFO that outlines the root cause of the incident.
