CS Web Sites are down

The main CS website, virtual websites, wiki and CS Guide are currently down. We are working to correct the problem.

UPDATE 11:03am: all systems are back up and working as expected.

Internet connectivity from OIT provided networks

Tuesday, September 25th, 2012


“OIT network administrators have informed the Help Desk that the OIT provided network is experiencing problems acccessing resources off of the Princeton campus. This includes all internet websites as well as mail resources. Connections to intranet resources (file shares, OIT mail servers, Princeton websites) will all still work from on campus connections. OIT administrators are working to resolve this issue and more information will be provided here as it becomes avaiable.”

CS and HPCRC Network Outage

Monday, September 17th, 2012

As of 4:39pm today both the CS and HPCRC external fiber connections are currently down. We are working with OIT to restore the connections and will post updates as we know more. All external traffic outside of the CS network will not work because the fiber connections are down.

UPDATE 8:02pm: we now have the external connection restored to the main CS router and have connectivity to the outside from the CS department. We still have no connections to HPCRC.

UPDATE 8:36pm: we now have the HPCRC fiber connection restored.

UPDATE 8:40pm: All network connections have been restored and connectivity to the outside should be working as expected.

EPILOG 9/26/2012 11:21am: Root cause may have been related to renovation at another site where our fiber is routed.
