On October 17, 2003, the network in Trimble Hall was divided into two vlans. Vlan 116 contains all the Resnet ports while Vlan 100 contains the public ports located in the Forum and Seminar Rooms. The uplink from Trimble to the Core router was converted from a Layer 3 routed port to a Layer 2 Vlan Switched port. This configuration will be the prototype for the rest of the campus network.
The Cascade web interface was down for a several hours on the morning of October 8, 2003 following the regularly scheduled Information Services preventative maintenance period.
This outage was partially the result of some miscommunication within Information Services, and the improper shutdown of the Oracle Application Server on the effected system, Camano.
The backup server was brought on line around 11:00 am and remained up until late in the afternoon. The issues surrounding the failure are being addressed both within Information Services and with Oracle.
The production instance of the Oracle Application Server issue was resolved, and brought back on-line by the 5:00 pm.
On October 8, 2003 during Information Services normal preventative maintenance window, all systems with Solaris 8 and Solaris 9 received Sun’s recommended OS patches.
Apache, mod_fastcgi, mod_ssl, php, and openssl were all upgraded to the follwoing versions on the University’s main web server, www.ups.edu:
As a result of CERT Advisory CA-2003-26 the openssl has been upgrade on the University mail server, web server and dns servers. We are now working on rebuilding applications which use the effected libraries (e.g. httpd, sendmail, named).
