Today’s eduBuzz service interruption

Today there was a repeat of the problem which interrupted the eduBuzz service for an hour or so last Friday morning. The service was down first thing, and the fault reported at 07.30am. I haven’t been able to use it until within the last hour. As far as I can tell, normal service has now been resumed.

The problem was caused by a DNS fault at the datacentre which hosts the server, which meant that the server could not perform lookups of internet domain names to get their corresponding IP addresses.

Apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused.
