All Services Down

(Editor’s Note: This is an import from the old outages site and has been backdated appropriately.)

Jan 7, 2008 10:00PM – Jan 8, 2008 4:45PM: A routine kernel update to the main VMware server London caused the machine to refuse to boot properly, preventing services from restarting. As of 16:45PM, all services are online. A review will be performed to ensure that an outage like this will not be as likely to occur, and if it does, prevent it from being so service affecting.
