On Thursday, at around 11:30 am, we encountered a problem with some of our network switches, which are connected to several central servers. When the switches were rebooted, connectivity to the servers was lost, and this may have prevented some users from accessing their emails and network files. The servers and their associated services were restored to normal by 12:15 pm. We apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced.
Network connections from Solin Hall and the MUHC were interrupted earlier today due to a minor landslide, which broke a fibre cable link just outside the McIntyre Medical Building. Network crews were able to restore service by 3:00 pm the same day.
