{Login System} Domain Controller Maintenance, October 22, 8:00 p.m. – Ongoing

INCIDENT UPDATE: Technology Services encountered an issue with our earlier maintenance on this domain controller. As a result we are extending our maintenance window on this server and are working to bring it back online as soon as possible. The issue we encountered with the domain controller impacted myPugetSound for a few hours, although TS was able make myPugetSound accessible again as of 11:15 p.m. At this time the maintenance we are performing on this domain controller should have little to no impact on campus systems.

Subject: [Tscommunications] {Login System} Domain Controller Reboot, October 22, 8:00 p.m.

 

This is an announcement from Technology Services (TS). Please see details below.

Login System: Domain Controller Reboot

Monday, October 22, 2018 from 8:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

REASON FOR IMPACT: Technology Services is restarting one of our four domain controllers during this maintenance window to remove an application related to our former Cascade system that is no longer needed. There should be little noticeable impact to our Puget Sound applications. However, if you attempt to login to a Puget Sound site or service during this time and you have difficulty, wait for a few minutes and try again.

{myPugetSound} Portal Inaccessible, October 22, 8:30 p.m. to 11:15 p.m. (RESOLVED)

This is an announcement from Technology Services (TS). Please see details below.

myPugetSound: Portal Inaccessible – RESOLVED

Monday, October 22, 2018 from 8:30 p.m. to 11:15 p.m.

REASON FOR IMPACT: Technology Services has resolved the issue that was impacting myPugetSound. Our work earlier this evening on a domain controller had a direct impact on a login mechanism used by myPugetSound. TS was able to make an update to myPugetSound to bypass the domain controller that is being worked on and you should be able to log in to myPugetSound. As a next step, TS will evaluate our options to increase redundant access to our login systems from myPugetSound.
