OSU DNS partial outage 6/5/2014

OSU Network Announcements - 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.

Academic Technology classroom presentation equipment

OSU Network Announcements - Wed, 05/14/2014 - 12:51pm

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).

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