We are porting to a new database on the administrative server this weekend (starting Friday July 1 at 5pm and ending sometime Monday July 4). While we are working on this project the services that run on this server will not be available. This includes:
We have received several reports of a new phishing scam which is targeting Inboxes in our domain. While most to the instances of the scam have been delivered to users' Junk Email folders, the nature of the scam warrants a special warning.
The phishing scam (which appears to come in multiple instances) has the subject "New Notification Regarding Your Payroll" and appears to come from an NWU email address. In fact, the spoofed address - firstname.lastname@example.org - is not from NWU. Note, too, the misspelling in the address.
CSIT has scheduled a maintenance operation for the campus file server – Huxley – this weekend. We are continuing our project to reconfigure some features of the storage behind the scenes, but the operation will require taking the file systems off line during the maintenance.
All file systems served by Huxley – most notably \Home and \Misc – will be unavailable starting Saturday, 5/21, at about 10:00pm. We anticipate that the maintenance and reconfiguration will be completed and Huxley file systems available once again by 11:00pm.
