The problem seems to have occurred at NESDIS. Once NCO switched from the NESDIS STAR ‘ftp2' server to the ‘ftp' server, the data began flowing again.

>From the SDM’s log:


3a. 1020Z - BB is showing purple ftp and red ingest/products
flags for the himawari-a1 system.  An email was sent to the STAR
folks about this.  IDP's Viktor was also called...he will
investigate switching to the backup STAR system. (MAS/GWN) 

3b. 1155Z - Viktor reported that he switched processing from the
ftp2 STAR system to the ftp STAR system and that we are now
processing Himawari data normally.  I see the same in BB and in
NMAP.  Viktor also reports it looks like the BB ftp test for the
a1/b1 systems is hung up on ftp2...that is why the flags went
purple...he will work on clearing these.

3c. 1311Z - Viktor was able to clear the ftp purple flag on the
primary b1 server.  However he cannot clear the purple flag on
the backup server at this time.  This monitoring issue on the
backup machine will be dealt with further on Monday.

Most likely it is an issue at Wisconsin, unless some firewall change prevented us from connected. Also, in the longer term, I would like to get the sat winds from an operational source at NESDIS.
