It turns out this was related to an admin not saving their iptables config. Upon rebooting of the database server, the config was lost preventing connection.

as per log the data base is not configured

check this document to configure data base

i hope those links will hel you

This is a production instance. We simply re-booted the server and this is the result something more ominous is going on here, I think.

I'd suggest you to check your confluence.cfg file located at Home directory\log folder and ensure if database information such as password is correctly informed, then try to restart your instance just for test purpose.

This is the part of the error that worries me:

No server id found.

Should I not worry about that and just try the database config?

I've seen this error when the confluence.cfg.xml file is not formatted properly. Ensure that all elements are properly formatted and closed per xml standards.
