The Oracle Cloud Infrastructure team detected the instance(s) identified below rebooted one or more times during the incident window listed in this notification, due to an error within the underlying infrastructure.

The error has been corrected and our monitoring indicates these instance(s) are now in a healthy state. We recommend that you verify the affected instance(s) are performing as expected. If assistance is required, please contact support.
