Instability in the Microsoft Network

Filed under: Data Center Ops,Dedicated Servers,Virtual Servers — admin @ 8:06 am

For the past 10 hours or so we have been handling an 820% surge in reboot requests for hung Microsoft servers after applying the latest security patches. Our managed network of Windows 2003 servers has not been affected but a huge portion of our network apparently has, please be advised.

If your Windows Server becomes inaccessible as a result of the latest patches please open a ticket request and mark it as urgent. You will not be charged for the support request and your reboot will be handled with the highest priority. We have an additional shift on hand in all data centers to help you through this network event.
