Service announcement: 18 September 2015

Date:

Friday, 18 September 2015

Time:

17:30 18 September – 04:20 19 September (UTC +10)

Duration:

10 hours 50 minutes

Services affected:

Whois

Description:

APNIC whois nodes in the US and UK were not available for the specified duration. The issue was caused by emergency maintenance on Friday where the US and UK nodes were withdrawn from the APNIC whois service pool. The withdrawal process did not go as expected and as a result whois request traffic was not redirected to other regions, consequently all whois queries in the affected regions did not receive whois responses.
