Both of the below errors are most likely related to the internal network issues that were reported in StackStatus twitter account, but still think it's better reporting here.

  1. When trying to write a new query, I'm greeted with the generic ASP.NET error page:

  2. When trying to execute existing query (example) I get the error:

    The target principal name is incorrect. Cannot generate SSPI context.

    Bug? Heck, that's just sentient servers knowing who you are and cringing. – Tim Post Feb 17 '15 at 16:23
  • Probably fall-out from the downtime this morning. As Oded states: At this point, the websites are up and running, but some services are still spotty – Martijn Pieters Feb 17 '15 at 16:24
  • @Tim eh, this might be true! ;) – Shadow The Princess Wizard Feb 17 '15 at 16:25

    @MartijnPieters yup, I clearly mentioned this in the very beginning of the post. Still, they might forget about those services so this can be used to remind them. – Shadow The Princess Wizard Feb 17 '15 at 16:25
  • @ShadowWizard: yeah, you are quite right. It wouldn't be the first time SEDE was left behind (or left disconnected after a database server move..). – Martijn Pieters Feb 17 '15 at 16:28
  • SRE team has been informed and have reproduced the issue(s). – Oded Feb 17 '15 at 16:32
  • Hmm, we should probably have a better error page huh? – Tim Stone Feb 17 '15 at 17:08

    @Oded this SRE team? ;-) – Shadow The Princess Wizard Feb 17 '15 at 18:41
  • @Tim this, or add a read only mode too. If you add error page don't forget the lolcat! :-) – Shadow The Princess Wizard Feb 17 '15 at 18:42

    @ShadowWizard you are on meta here, not in the Den...keep it civil please ;) – rene Feb 17 '15 at 20:43
  • Oh, and it must be fixed now, Closey did fetch the latest tag in the Close vote room... – rene Feb 17 '15 at 20:50
  • @rene yup, working again! Will post self answer soon if no dev would post first. – Shadow The Princess Wizard Feb 17 '15 at 20:52
  • Umm.. Several seconds ago I still get this error page when browsing through SEDE. The last time I used SEDE was eight hours ago and it was working normally :( – masegaloeh Feb 19 '15 at 9:01
  • @masegaloeh weird indeed! – Shadow The Princess Wizard Feb 19 '15 at 9:02
  • Thanks for fixing @Marc, what happened there? – Shadow The Princess Wizard Feb 19 '15 at 12:40
