[Resolved] Logon Issue

A number of university systems were adversely impacted by a time synchronization issue. Correct time synchronization plays a key role in authentication across various systems and an incorrect date from a US Navy time source disrupted authentication. We have changed our servers to synchronize from another time source which has resolved the problem.

If you are still experiencing logon issues, please contact the Technology Service Desk at 253.879.8585 or
