A scheduled maintenance to upgrade production software encountered unforeseen issues. While working to resolve the unforeseen issues during this change, a command was issued which accidentally killed the process that runs DNS on all of the servers. To resolve the incident a query was issued to restart DNS first on Pod 5. When it was confirmed that this resolved the incident on Pod 5, the query was issued for the rest of the Pods.
