[Updated] Logon Issues for Certain Users 11/17/2011

[Updated 11/17/11 6:37 p.m.] Email service has now been restored for affected users. We continue to work to address any residual issues affecting accounts and permissions for these particular members of the Puget Sound community. Your patience and understanding are greatly appreciated!

[Updated 11/17/11 3:37 p.m.] At this time, affected users are being notified individually by the Technology Service Desk that access to Cascade has been restored. We continue to work to restore email and access to other services which require a Puget Sound login. We sincerely regret the inconvenience and thank you again for your patience!

An issue has arisen which affects the Puget Sound login for certain members of the campus community. If you are in this group, you may not be able to log onto university computers or access email, Cascade, Moodle, or other accounts which require your Puget Sound username and password.

We are working to restore service as quickly as possible, but this issue may take several hours to resolve. We appreciate your patience and apologize greatly for the inconvenience.

Updates will be posted here, and affected users will be notified directly as new information becomes available.

Scheduled Maintenance on Core Router

I will be upgrading the IOS on our Core Router (Cisco 6905) at 5:00am tomorrow morning (Tuesday Feb 8th).

The upgrade is to enable a new 10GB interface slot card.

All preparations are already in place, so I expect the downtimes to be short (5-10min each) and intermittent between 5:00-6:00am.

During the downtimes, all inter network-connectivity will be disabled.  There will be no access to any services or resources during this time.

This will include but not limited to: email, internet, databases, VPN, etc.
