Keewaytinook Okimakanak's online services experiences system failure

On Wednesday after a brief network shut down to upgrade the electrical system feeding the server farm in Sioux Lookout, a critical KO server  failed to restart properly resulting in several online services being offline for a day and half. The KO Network team were able to keep the e-mail and IP phone service operating throughout this period.

Nearly all services are now returned to normal. Due to the massive size of the MyKnet.Org service is still in the process of being returned to its original state before the system failure. We hope this service will be back online over the weekend.

The team at K-Net is pleased that our back-up systems and processes have proven to be successful at maintaining a secure network service for our partners. We do apologize to everyone for any inconvenience that this system failure caused.

With the new back up generator now in place we anticipate that the Kuhkenah Network is now able to provide continuous online services even throughout any lengthy power outages. Funding for these network services have been obtained from our partners at Industry Canada's FedNor program.
