Herstarten Vault systeem na Banjo virus

Bas K, Reesink Production BV 5 months ago

Ons systeem was getroffen door een banjo virus. Hierdoor waren alle bestand geencrypt en moesten de back-ups teruggezet worden. Na het terugzetten van het systeem werkte de Vault server niet meer. Gezien Cadac niet direct iemand beschikbaar had werd Ed Mater als Cadac expert ingezet. Ed heeft dit zeer snel opgepakt en de oorzaak gevonden. Dit heeft hij met ons externe ICT bedrijf afgestemd en gezamenlijk hebben ze ieder hun deel gedaan zodat we weer snel konden draaien. Na de installatie door Ed hebben we gezamenlijk een aantal testen gedaan en kwamen we tot de conclusie dat het systeem weer naar behoren draait.
