Dec. 7th 9:30am Update- Mail services were returned to service at approximately 9am. Server performance may be slower for the next few hours as the system normalizes.

Dec. 7th 8:15am Update- Scheduled work is now proceeding.

Dec. 6th: To Our Campus Community-

In order to allow a set of emergency data backup operations to complete,
OIT will not be shutting down the campus mail server this evening.
Instead, we will be replacing the failed components as early as possible
tomorrow morning (Thursday Dec 7th)

We anticipate shutting down at approximately 8:15AM tomorrow and expect
to be operational again within 45 minutes. We realize that this
interruption is occurring at the start of business tomorrow, but we want
to be sure that we have a recent backup of critical disk volumes prior
to any hardware repairs.

As previously announced, please check the main campus web page or call
the University Help Desk at x7971 for up to the minute status.
