Access interruption overnight Sep 5th

As unlikely as it seems, a problem entirely unrelated to the new wireless configuration blocked all student access both to wired and wireless and all staff access to wireless from 11:15 PM on Sep 5 to 1:45 AM on the 6th.

The issue was an unprecedented problem with our security certificates which are needed for access to the system. Helpdesk staff notified ITS immediately as it arose and staff began working on the problem.

Updates were provided on Twitter and Facebook and via word-of-mouth as there was information to share.
