This is an uncategorized outage.
D2L is again available to all UW users. From Peter Mann with the D2L Utility at UW-Madison: A post-outage review will be conducted focusing on the events that transpired. We believe that a lightning strike or power surge caused critical damage to the Data Center Universal Power Supply (UPS) during a significant storm that hit the campus [Wednesday] morning. The system is architected to fail over to live power, but it failed to do so. The reason that this didn’t happen as expected is unknown at this point. We appreciate the tremendous patience that you exhibited throughout the day.
