Notice of Unplanned Outage

On Tuesday 13th May 2014, the Academic Technology group started receiving reports of problems with the presentation equipment in some of the classrooms. Network Engineering and Academic Technology are working together to determine the underlying cause of this continuing intermittent problem.

Academic Technology suggests that instructors come to rooms equipped to potentially work without the network (i.e. bring presentations/slides on a flash drive).

Planned Maintenance – CWS Drupal 6 Update on Tuesday May 6

Tue, 04/29/2014 - 1:45pm

On Tuesday May 6 CWS will be updating CWS Hosted Drupal 6 sites to the latest version of Drupal 6. This release includes an important security update for Drupal core and several modules. Although this will incur a 2 to 3 minute interruption in service to the affected websites, most site visitors will not notice the interruption, as most pages are cached. This will be a rolling upgrade and we cannot say exactly when or on which day a specific site will be affected.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact us through our form at http://oregonstate.edu/is/services/cws/contact.

Thank you, Paul Lieberman Central Web Services
