Planned Maintenance – CWS Drupal 7 Update on Tuesday June 24

Fri, 06/20/2014 - 8:49am

On Tuesday June 24 CWS will be updating CWS Hosted Drupal 7 sites to the latest versions of Drupal. This update is only for existing Drupal 7 sites. This release includes important security updates 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

OSU DNS partial outage 6/5/2014

Thu, 06/05/2014 - 9:10am

One of OSU’s DNS servers (NS2) crashed this morning 6/5/2014 at about 6:25AM. The system was rebooted and service restored by 8:00AM.

The DNS service allows computers to find services on the network by name. Although computers are usually configured to use multiple DNS servers, fail-over is not always graceful and some services can be interrupted. In particular, we received reports this morning that some customers were not able to login to OSU’s WordPress site (blogs.oregonstate.edu) and courses.ecampus.oregonstate.edu.

We apologize for the service disruption. We will be investigating ways to make this service more resilient.
