Our Blackboard upgrade was completed successfully and associated services should now be completely functional. Although there are minor updates that will be applied throughout the day, Blackboard should remain accessible.
Nebraska Wesleyan's Blackboard (Bb) services will be unavailable beginning at 5:30 a.m. on Sunday, January 18th while Managed Hosting Support completes an important upgrade. Assuming that no problems are encountered, we expect that Bb will be available again by 11:30 a.m. on Monday, January 19th.
Late yesterday afternoon, the primary internal DNS server for the campus network failed. While the secondary internal DNS server is still working, the failure of the primary has resulted in significant performance issues for any network operations which require DNS queries.
CSIT is working now both on ways to ameliorate system performance issues and on restoring the primary internal DNS to service.
