Network Switch Failure

At approximately 6:19PM today (Friday, June 6th), one of two redundant network switches in the Production Data Center went into an odd state. All lights were on, but no traffic was moving in the switch. CARLI servers are plugged into both switches for redundancy, but the failure took down all networking. The failed switch was restarted and all services were back online at 6:54PM.

We will need to look closely at the log files to see if we can determine what caused the network switch error and why the redundancy did not protect us from this error.
