The Chigaco area -- where the authentication occurs on 56k/ISDN lines -- is getting hit hard by wind storms and power outages at the moment (with another storm on the way, it turns out), and a problem with authentication for ISDN and Dual-56k subscribers was caused by this. Servers are up on generators at the moment, and the radius for these dual-channel accounts was just now rebooted to return this authentication. Things should be back up. Our own servers here in Seattle were not affected by this, only the dialup and authentication for ISDN/Dual-56k users. I'll keep an eye on the status of the storm, too. ~ Eric Problem: Power Outage Location: Global Time: 17:34 5/18/2000 CST Status: ONGOING Situation: Commercial power is still out at our main facility. All servers and services will continue to run indefinitely on Battery and Generator power. A second severe storm cell is headed towards our location. We will continue to monitor the weather and will post an update in the event that it may cause any further disruptions to our facility. At this time all servers are fully operational and are expected to continue operations un-interrupted. Problem: Power Outage Location: Global Time: 16:45 5/18/2000 CST Status: ONGOING Situation: Commercial power is still out at our main facility in Palatine, IL. All servers and services are running on battery and generator power at this time, and will continue to do so until commercial power is restored. The phone system has been restored to service. No service interruptions ( Radius, DNS, WWW, Email, etc.) were experienced due to this power outage, and none are expected due to the Generator and Battery backup systems. Updates will be posted here as the situation warrants. -- Eric T.
