UPDATE: EECS Network and Service Outage 12/22/16

We ran into a number of difficulties on the electrical side which delayed restoration of services, but basic networking (wired and wireless) were brought back at approximately 12PM.

At this time we are experiencing some slowness in the LDAP system, and we have also encountered trouble in bringing the NetApp file servers online. As a result the department website and file storage, as well as other services which rely on them, are still offline.

EECS Full Network and Service Outage, Thurs. 12/22/16 7:30AM – 1:00PM

Published 2:43 p.m. Nov 01, 2016

Scheduled Maintenance

Services Affected: Active Directory, DHCP, DNS, FTP Server, Home Directory Storage, IRIS Website, Mailing Lists, Project Storage, Repo Service, Unix Login Server, Wiki Hosting, Windows Terminal Server, Wired Networking, and Wireless Networking

Begins 7:30 a.m. Dec 22, 2016

We will have a full system shutdown on Thursday, December 22nd at 7:30 AM to perform necessary fire and emergency power testing in our server rooms. The entire EECS network and all hosted resources will be offline during this maintenance.

This will affect networking in the following locations:

Wired and wireless networks offline:

  • Soda Hall
  • Cory Hall
  • Sutardja Dai Hall
  • Jacobs Hall
  • BWRC

Wireless networks offline, wired remains online:

  • Blum Hall
  • Calvin Lab

Hosted resources such as the EECS website, file servers, etc. will be offline and globally inaccessible.

The facilities maintenance window is scheduled from 7:30 AM to 1 PM, but we anticipate the network and critical services should be back by 11AM if all goes well.

The intent is to perform these tests annually going forward; however we will learn from this year’s procedure and aim to keep more critical services online in the future.
