Connectivity issues after power outage
Posted on 2017-03-13
We had a power outage that lasted several days. Networking equipment and PC's were on UPS. After the power came back on we had an electrician come out and check our building. He determined that the building was running on 2/3 power, meaning that the power delivered to the building by (DTE, our local energy company) was only getting 2/3 of what it is supposed to.
We have the following symptoms. 1. several workstations could not power up in their "cube" or office. However, phones (VoIp with POE) do work as well as lights in the office. 2. If we take the workstation from the office and put in on the RACK in the IT closet, it powers up fine and gets to the internet. We did this successfully with all three machines that were in this state. 3. In the IT closet when have a desk so we put one of the users computers in there so he could work. Unfortunately once we did this another PC in the IT closest that acts as a server was / is going OFF LINE. We have rebooted all switches.
Any ideas? Suggestions, experiences?
