Information about partial systems outage from Thursday 7/20

Yesterday evening shortly after 10pm one of the main storage units that services myUMBC, on-campus mail and several other central services suffered a failure that caused these systems to be either taken off-line or respond slowly. 

DoIT staff worked on the system and we were able to move over to a backup unit and restored all services shortly after 1:00am. 

Any users on the affected mail system may have seen a delay in the delivery of mail, but all messages would have been queued up and delivered once service was restored. 

We apologize for any inconvenience this caused, if you have any questions or concerns about this outage or any of the systems affected, please feel free to contact me for additional information. 

Thanks and have a great weekend,

Damian Doyle
Senior Director of Enterprise Infrastructure
