CONNECT (Exchange Server): Certificate maintenance May 28th at 10am

Information Systems & Technology (IST) will be replacing the Exchange SSL certificates on Thursday morning (starting around 10:00am). This is being done during working hours because testing in the development/test environment did not result in any service outages related to installing the new certificate.

Email clients connected at the time of installation may receive notification of the certificate change (although this was not experienced in the development environment).

NETWORK ALERT - 2009-05-21 - Emergency wireless outage

Description: Emergency wireless outage
Date: (YYYY-MM-DD) 2009-05-21
Start Time: 02:52:00
End Time: 02:52:00
Impact: Wired/Wireless Authentication
Submitted by: sbourque@ist

Comment: Due to a problem with the router responsible for wireless authentication a reload is required.

While this seems to fix the network issues temporarily what is hoped to be a more permanent solution is being configured and will be implemented as soon as possible.

This will affect all wired/wireless authenticated users.
