DCENAS Instability

Network storage has been unreliable lately.

The Division's network storage device, DCENAS, has been unstable for the last few weeks. It failed entirely on Friday 18 February 2005 and following recovery there appears to be an underlying hardware fault that Dell is attempting to rectify. Analysis of the problem with DCENAS has been made more difficult due to recent episodes of network instability and virus attacks.
