Cyder Upgrade Aug. 1, 10-11pm

Mon, 07/20/2015 - 12:58pm

On Saturday August 1st, 10pm, our central DNS/DHCP management software named Cyder will be upgraded to add functionality and apply bug fixes. This will require taking Cyder’s web interface off-line for 10-20 minutes. This also means that the wireless self-registration page will be unavailable during this time.

Old Core maintenance coming up

Thu, 07/02/2015 - 3:50pm

As announced previously, please be reminded that over the holiday weekend, the OSU Network Operations team will be performing maintenance on the old core network. The goal of this maintenance is the replace some older equipment, and stream-line the old core network.

Starting at 9PM tonight (July 2, 2015) and continuing throughout the evening, there will be several brief outages in the old core, as several pieces of equipment are removed from the network, and other equipment is inserted into the network.

Starting on Friday morning (July 3rd), and continuing throughout the rest of the weekend, there will be rolling outages in the buildings connected to the old core switches “DRT0″ and “DRT1″. This covers about 120 buildings, and the outage will be about 5 minutes per building.

Sincerely, Johan Reinalda OSU IS Networking and Telecom

Upgrading old core equipment

Wed, 06/24/2015 - 3:48pm

Service(s) affected: All network connectivity to buildings connected to old core (DRT0 and DRT1) and all subnets routed by those routers, which represents about 75% of the campus network.

Replacing two old routers with a new one (DRT0 and DRT1 move to DRT2). There will be a long outage starting 8pm on 7/2 for about an hour to insert DRT2 and re-cable DRT0 DRT1 as “slaves”. Then there will be a rolling outage, ~5 min. outage per building, and also ~5 min. outage per subnet.

Outage Window: Start: 07/02/2015 8:00 PM End: 07/06/2015 7:00 AM

Reason for outage: DRT0 and DRT1 are obsolete. The vendor will no longer provide support. We have had several failures on this equipment already. The OS code is old and has known vulnerabilities.


Departments affected: All buildings connected to DRT0 or DRT1 (approx 120) and all subnets routed on those routers (approx 80).

Locations affected: See above. Send email to if you want more specific information.

Applications affected: In affected buildings and/or affected subnets there will be complete loss of network connectivity.

Network Outage Policy

If you have questions or concerns about this outage, please contact Network Engineering at net (at) or call 737-HELP.

The intermittent authentication on the OSU_Access wireless network, impacting registered devices, has been resolved.

Sincerely, Johan Reinalda Network Operations

OSU_Access intermittent problems

Wed, 06/24/2015 - 9:10am

The OSU_Access wireless network is experiencing intermittent login problems with registered devices. Registered devices are not being recognized and auto-login fails. If you have a registered device, after connecting to OSU_Access please open up a browser to login with your ONID credentials.

Network Operations is troubleshooting this and will report once the problem is fixed.

As a better and more secure solution, we recommend that you configure your device to use the OSU_Secure wireless network.

Sincerely, Johan Reinalda Network Operations
