EECS Network Outage

The EECS networks became unreachable around 1:20pm on Monday, April 10.  Staff are investigating.

Update (2:15pm):   Staff investigation found the problem to be at or with one of the department border firewall devices. The secondary firewall device has been made primary now, and traffic is routing properly. Staff will further examine the problem firewall device, to narrow down the specific cause.
