Unplanned issues

Transient network issue - 2014-10-23 09:00
Some services including document serving, access to data request/delivery including GEBCO are intermittantly being disrupted due to a transient network issue. This results in a Internal server error message being presented. This is being actively investigated. Further details will be provided as they become known. Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience being caused.

Update - 2014-10-23 21:30
We have implimented a fix to bypass and negate the network issue. Services should still be considered at risk until we have fully tested our systems tomorrow morning.

Update - 2014-10-24 10:00
Systems have been tested and services are now working as expected. The transient network issue has been resolved. Please accept our apologies that arose from this disruption in service.
