Google Apps Service Interruptions, Friday 1/24

Fri, 01/24/2014 - 12:09pm

Google is reporting that Google Mail experienced a service interruption this morning, January 24, from 11:10am to 11:20am. They seem to have resolved this issue, which affected all Google users, and not just accounts for Google Apps for OSU.

Google is also reporting issues with access to other core apps as of 11:58am, although these issues seem to be variable and intermittent. Again, these issues are potentially affecting all Google users.

For more information, please see the Google Apps Status Dashboard at http://www.google.com/appsstatus.

Exchange Services Outage

Thu, 01/23/2014 - 3:21pm


There are confirmed reports of intermittent time out errors, when using Outlook Web App (exmail.oregonstate.edu/owa) starting on 1/21/14. We are aware of the issues, and have undertaken some steps to troubleshoot the issues at hand.

We will advise when the issue is fixed, and we apologize for the disruption in services.

Load Balancer maintenance Saturday January 25th 8am

Wed, 01/22/2014 - 6:31pm

Saturday January 25th at 8am I will roll services over to the secondary load balancer, which is running the latest software. Any persistent network connections through the load balancer will be dropped, but new connections can be established immediately.

The following services typically have persistent connections through the load balancer:

ONID LDAP – ldap.onid.orst.edu ONID IMAP – imap.onid.oregonstate.edu Banner INB – adminfo.ucsadm.oregonstate.edu

ONID IMAP and Banner INB users may notice a “blip” and need to reconnect.

The following websites are also serviced by the load balancer, but there are no persistent connections so we don’t expect any impact to users:

MyOSU – https://myosu.oregonstate.edu OSU Online Services – https://adminfo.ucsadm.oregonstate.edu OSCAR – https://oscar.oregonstate.edu Nolij – https://nolij.ucsadm.oregonstate.edu/NolijWeb/ MyONID – https://secure.onid.oregonstate.edu CAS/Shibboleth – https://login.oregonstate.edu ONID Webmail – https://webmail.oregonstate.edu

We will run on the secondary load balancer for a week to ensure there are no issues with the new software. If there are no issues, I will upgrade the software on the primary load balancer and roll services back to it. I’ll send another notice to Outages when that is scheduled.

IS Services status update, Wed. 1/8

Wed, 01/08/2014 - 12:48pm

The issues that caused service interruptions on Monday and Tuesday have all been resolved and these services are running as expected. The affected services were the OSU_Secure wireless network, Nolij, WebVPN, and ONID class group lists.

WebVPN login issue resolved, 1/7, 5:50am

Tue, 01/07/2014 - 8:27am

We have now resolved the WebVPN login issue that was discovered on Monday, Jan. 6th. A failover and reboot of the primary server solved this issue. We believe the issue was caused by an error in the new code version on the VPN, and we have reported the potential issue with Cisco.

Nolij Login Issues Resolved

Mon, 01/06/2014 - 5:00pm

The issue with Nolij logins has been resolved. Nolij had reached a logging limit. The limit has been adjusted and Nolij is now operating normally.

Service Interruption, OSU_Secure, Sun. 1/5 8:00am to Mon. 1/6 11:20am

Mon, 01/06/2014 - 11:30am

The OSU_Secure wireless network experienced a service interruption beginning Sunday, Jan. 5th around 8:00am. The issue was resolved at 11:20am on Monday the 6th. During this time, community members could still use the OSU wireless network, but had to do so via OSU_Access or other network.

On a related note, as of 12:00pm on Monday, WebVPN is unavailable and staff are working to resolve the issue.

The interruptions stem from the data center maintenance conducted on Sunday morning. Information Services apologies for the service interruptions.
