CUIT NetPhone service will be updated Wednesday, September 10th 2008, at 6:00 PM. The update is being applied to the presence server which provides Bridged Line Appearance (BLA) functionality for the NetPhone service. This function indicates when a shared line is in use on another phone.
This change should have no impact on regular NetPhone service.
However, NetPhone users configured for BLA might notice that their indicator light does not appear.
The indicator light should re-appear within an hour of the change.
Update 9/10/2008 at 8:05pm:
This maintenance work did not take place today. It will be rescheduled in the near future.
Tuesday, between 7 and 8pm, we will be replacing a failing hard drive on one of the pinex servers. Users on the affected server will have to log back in and will be redirected to the other pinex server. We estimate approximately 50 users will be affected.
Due to the large number of students accessing the university's calendaring system, Sundial (http://calendar.columbia.edu/sundial), for the ServiceNation event on Sept 11 featuring Senators Barak Obama and John McCain there is a bit of a slowdown which has at times been resulting in a request timeout. Configuration changes are underway to allow more connections to the event's registration.
Users are urged to try registering for the event later. Due to demand, registration has been extended until 8:00am Monday (9/8). As connections to Sundial close, a chance will open for them to register. Order of registration will not have any effect on the user's chances of winning the lottery that will ultimately choose the students who may attend. Registration for the event is at https://calendar.columbia.edu/sundial/webapi/register.php?eventID=25241.
NOTE: This announcement was updated 8:47pm on Friday 9/5, and an earlier version reflected a differnt deadline.
Update 9/10/2008 at 2:55pm:
Please be aware that the ServiceNation lottery has been conducted and all students allotted tickets have now been notified.
In order to perform necessary maintenance technicians will cause a short service interruption affecting only the Health Services office in John Jay. The maintenance is scheduled for 9/5/2008 between 8:00am and 8:30am.
