WebCT is currently under a very heavy load. We are restarting WebCT Vista and hope to have the service restored as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.
Please note that the University's Central Software Distribution Site (ELMS e-academy), which supplies McGill-licensed software, is experiencing technical difficulties and is unavailable until further notice.
Please note that EXCHANGE mail server will be unavailable on Sunday, February 26, from 3 pm to 4 pm, due to an upgrade. Incoming messages will be queued and delivered once the system is back up.
Please note that staff email on EXCHANGE will be unavailable on Saturday, March 19, 2005 (tomorrow) from 06h00 to 07h00, due to a maintenance procedure. Incoming mail for EXCHANGE users will be queued and delivered when service is restored.
We are currently experiencing issues trying to send emails to the server responsible for emails to some sub-domains. The issue is not on the McGill server but on the other server's end. There is nothing McGill can do except to continue to try to deliver the email for the standard 5-day period, at which time it will bounce if still undeliverable.
Please note that the Anti-Spam Quarantine website (http://yourspam.mcgill.ca) will be unavailable on Friday, June 22, 2007, from 06h00 to 12 noon, due to maintenance. Email delivery and quarantining are not affected and will continue to function.
Slow or unresponsive database connections when using Crystal Reports 11 corrected in system-wide fix
Time-outs and slow responses when accessing 10g databases with Crystal Reports have been eliminated. There is no need to maintain ODBC connections as a data source. Furthermore, it is now recommended that only native Oracle connections be used for Crystal Reports, i.e., New Reports > Standard Report Creation Wizard, then expand Create New Connection and select "Oracle Server."
We are currently experiencing a problem with WebCT Vista. We will update you when information is available.
The Exchange server, which was unavailable for approximately 15 minutes this morning, has now been restored.
For any member of the McGill community who uses McGill IT resources.
