    Do you have a ups?

    Is it manageable? as this should tell you in its logs if there was a surge or not.

    Can you login locally and check they can see the domain/ping servers etc? Are they all in the same location?

    Could be a switch is playing up after the surge.

    yeah i'd be looking at the switches they are connected to, its possible that the surge tripped a circuit breaker powering the switches

    Technically a brown out :-P
    Local login can be reset if need be.

    Doesn't that come under the category "Have you turned it off and on again"?

    Would have been the first thing i would have done ( disconnect untill MB power light goes out), and also turning the switches on and off again

    My old work had a server that when a brownout occered overnight and the ups died would require me turning it on and off again for about 20 mins untill i gave up, had a cup of coffee and it would then turn back on.
