Gentlemen, come on. I case you haven't looked inside a computer
lately, most of them still have a single fan on the processor
and a single power supply. The same is true for almost all of
the routers on the net. In my experience over the years of
managing dozens of systems, these components do break frequently
enough to cause systems to be down for days until replacement
parts can be found or new systems are installed.

Until everything is redundant and replicated, these problems will
occur. Now, since the problem is "unable to resolve target system
name", the problem may not be with at all, but the nameserver
for the system.

Since the nameserver for refuses queries for the
domain, this sounds more like a configuration problem than a
hardware problem.
