Posted 3 months ago

D2L is again available to all UW users. From Peter Mann with the D2L Utility at UW-Madison: A post-outage review will be conducted focusing on the events that transpired. We believe that a lightning strike or power surge caused critical damage to the Data Center Universal Power Supply (UPS) during a significant storm that hit the campus [Wednesday] morning. The system is architected to fail over to live power, but it failed to do so. The reason that this didn’t happen as expected is unknown at this point. We appreciate the tremendous patience that you exhibited throughout the day.

2014-06-18 -- D2L Update: Outage Continues

Posted 3 months ago

From Peter Mann at the Utility at UW-Madison: Work continues to restore the power to the Data Center and bring Learn@UW and other IT services back online. Under normal conditions the services would be able to run using a backup power source, however, in this instance a catastrophic battery failure complicated the situation. We do not have an estimate as to when Learn@UW will be restored. When the power has been restored, the process will involve bringing servers and services back online in a coordinated fashion. Testing will follow to ensure application functionality. We will provide an "all clear" message when the testing is complete, however, it is possible that your users may access the system prior to this notification and therefore experience issues or errors. We will continue to keep you informed in a timely manner about important developments. Peter

We will keep you apprised as developments occur and understand the impact on you and your user community. Rest assured that the necessary staff are poised to re-enable the service in a timely and thorough manner. Your continued patience is appreciated.

Posted 3 months ago

From Peter Mann with D2L Utility Group at UW-Madison: The power has been restored to the Data Center and work is underway to restore core services, starting with the primary infrastructure (e.g., network). DoIT follows a Continuity of Operations Plan to restore services in an orderly and proper manner. It is expected to take ~2-4 hours to restore the Learn@UW service, which is largely dependent upon the state in which it comes back online. We will be able to engage after the core infrastructure services are available. We will provide an update when we begin the verification process and application testing. This communication will include an estimate as to when the service will be available. Thank you for your attention and continued patience.


2014-06-18 -- D2L Outage Update

Posted 3 months ago

From Peter Mann with the D2L Utility at UW-Madison: Work continues to bring core infrastructure services online, such as the network and enterprise storage. User-facing services are beginning to queue up for restoration. We cannot provide a specific estimate at this point as to when we can begin to bring Learn@UW (D2L) online, yet expect that it may be an hour or longer. Then, we will need to validate the service status and perform tests to verifying application integrity. This is expected to take approximately 2 - 4 hours to complete. We will continue to provide updates via this email list (UWS Site Admin) until such time when campus email and list services are restored. Peter

2014-05-02 -- Google Chrome Update

Posted 5 months ago

Google Chrome is being updated across campus due to several security bugs that were recently discovered in older versions of Chrome. The update has already been pushed to labs as of 5/1/2014. Installs in offices will begin to be updated today (5/2/2014). When non-admin users install Chrome, Chrome will install into their user profile (C:\users\USERNAME\...) instead of Program Files due to the fact that a non-admin user does not have permissions to install to Program Files. When the update is pushed out it will remove a "user install" and switch it to a "system install" that is located in Program Files. Users may see the an error message. After they click "OK" the install will be moved. They will be able to keep all settings/bookmarks/customizations. Users may have to re-create shortcuts in the start menu and task bar.

Posted over 1 year ago

Recently, Oracle has become aware of numerous flaws in their Java products. They have been releasing patches more frequently in recent weeks and LTS has been working hard to update these software products on our campus in order to ensure the security of our systems. In this process, Oracle has disabled some legacy features that many older applications and some newer ones rely on. If you know that a web site or any other application you use for your curriculum or your daily work uses Java, please verify that it continues to work after the latest version of Java is installed. You can see the version installed on your computer through the Software Center on Windows computers ( Start > All Programs > Utilities Under the “Installed Software tab”). We have seen some issues with Java RE 1.6 update 33 and later, Java RE 1.7 update 11 and later. If you have any applications that are a problem or you have further questions, please contact the LTS Help Desk.

Posted over 1 year ago

Qualtrics is working today! However yesterday, Tuesday, February 12, Qualtrics experienced an outage at one of our five data centers. We apologize for this outage and the problems it may have created for you. Here's why it occurred and what we're doing to ensure it doesn't happen again: • This outage was not due to a failure of Qualtrics' hardware or software, but rather the data center's power systems. • Both the primary and secondary power sources in the data center failed, impacting all of the data center's customers. • We are actively conducting a detailed post-mortem on the service delivery and quality of the data center until we can ensure prevention of this type of outage in the future. Ensuring 24x7 uptime for our client is extremely important to Qualtrics, and we take extensive measures to deliver it. Again, please accept our sincere apologies if you were impacted by this outage, and please be assured that we are working diligently to ensure this does not occur in the future.

Posted almost 2 years ago

Access to various campus services such as email and H: drives appeared to be unavailable this morning. The various services affected were due to a network slowdown. Technically the network was not down but flooded with traffic, causing network congestion and giving the appearance of the network being down. It appears the cause of the excess “chatter” or noise on the network may originate from a CPU on a switch, which is a network hardware component. Alerts notified tech services of the service problem. Since the network was not responsive they had to directly connect to the router on the server floor to diagnose it. The problem was identified and service was restored at 8:20.
