Unexpected downtime. This morning the primary power supply to the main server failed (12V pin voltage out of acceptable range). We are currently running on a backup PSU until a replacement unit can be found. This has caused the usual monday maintenance to be extended for the rest of the day (22:00 UTC).
To start out with the database will be offline while checking for possible damage. When the database check is finished things will continue in degraded mode (no new sessions are accepted) until a new and stable power supply has been installed.
The old supply has done well, it has been keeping the system up and running for more than 5 years now.
