This morning the hosting provider executed planned routine maintenance on several of our servers. During the maintenance, servers were taken out of the production pool one by one.
At 1:45PM BST, during maintenance actions on one of the final servers, another server crashed due to hardware failure. Because of this crash, some virtual machines were not moved to a healthy host in time. This caused downtime for some environments.
At 2:13PM SBT the maintenance was completed and our servers were back online. Most TOPdesk environments recovered quickly, but some took up to 45 minutes to start correctly.
While we were starting TOPdesk environments and verifying all services were back online, several customers reported their TOPdesk environment was much slower than usual after the disruption. We investigated the root cause of this problem, and found that due to the disruption one firewall ended up in an inconsistent state, causing traffic to that specific node to be dropped.
At 4:10PM BST all firewall configurations were restored to the correct state and performance was again back to normal.
If you still encounter problems while working in your TOPdesk environment, please contact TOPdesk Support.

During planned routine maintenance on one of our servers by the hosting provider, another server crashed unexpectedly. With 2 servers down at the same time, not all virtual machines could be moved to an active server, causing downtime for several customer environments.
The maintenance is completed and our servers are back online. We're still in the process of restoring the final customer environments.
