Mac Snow Leopard Incompatibility Issues

As with many operating system upgrades, there are sometimes disparities in the release of the new operating system and the full support and compatibility of the applications and systems you need to use.

Update on Status of WebCampus and What you Can Expect Today, 9/18

We continue to experience database issues with WebCampus.  OIT staff have been working around the clock since the difficulties began to identify and fix the problems and to provide data to Oracle and WebCT technical staff who are also working around the clock to assist us in determining the root cause of the problems.

We are doing all we can to keep the system up while we affect repairs however, the nature of the problem is making it difficult to keep the redundancy that is built into the system viable, causing the frequent outages.  We will try to keep the system up throughout the day.  We are planning an emergency extended maintenance period for sometime tonight.  The time for that maintenance period has not yet been determined.

WebCampus Status Update: Available but solutions are still being investigated

The WebCampus service is currently available.

OIT continues to work with the manufacturers, Blackboard and Oracle, to find a solution to the overall, recurring problem. 

While always a good idea, it is even more strongly suggested during this time to save your work often and not to wait until the last minute to complete WebCampus activities.

WebCampus unavailable starting at 3:00, should be up by about 5:30
