All Deployments: Microsoft DNS Resolution Issue Causing Azure CA Authentication Failures
Incident Report for Duo
Resolved
As of 21:49 UTC, all Duo Azure Conditional Access authentications successfully reached Microsoft services, and we have not observed a failure due to the DNS routing issue since that time. Microsoft confirmed that the DNS issue was resolved in public cloud instances as of 23:05 UTC.

Per Microsoft’s Status Page at https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/status/ :

Current Status: Between 21:00 and 23:05 UTC on 29 Jan 2019, there was a DNS service event with Level 3 as a DNS provider which affected the Azure Public Cloud. Engineers continue to work on some residual impact in Azure Government Cloud.

For customers using Azure Monitor, there was a period of time where alerts, including Service Health alerts, did not fire.

Customer Impact: Some customers using the Azure Government Cloud may experience residual issues accessing Microsoft Cloud resources, as well as intermittent authentication issues across multiple Azure services. Steps have been taken to fail over to an alternative DNS provider, and recovery is currently being validated.

Next Update: 01:30 UTC on 30th Jan 2019
