Between 9:20 and 9:33, Wednesday, 9/30, Lotus Notes Domino 7 became unavailable. Technicians are working with IBM to determine the root cause.

September 29, 2009 - 5:03pm

At 4:46 pm on 09/29/09 Domino 7 is back up but the system is completing a consistency check on each mail file. This may cause problems with individual mail file access until the check is complete. We do not have an estimated time for completion.

September 29, 2009 - 4:00pm

AT 2:37 pm on 09/29/09, SEA reported that Domino 7 was down.  There is not yet a root cause. We are in contact with IBM and suspect the issue may take a while to resolve.

Wonda Riner, WebCampus Coordinator, prepared a Fall 2009 WebCampus Report which details the upgrades that were completed before the semester began in August, as well as the outages and upgrades that followed four weeks later, during the second week of September.

You will find that the root causes for the outages have been identified and that more enhancements to the system are planned for the future.

The recent issues with WebCampus were caused by a software bug deep in the Oracle database that stores all the content contained in the course management system. It took quite some time to eliminate all possible causes and many conversations with Oracle and Blackboard (the WebCampus vendor) to uncover the problem. The repairs were implemented September 19 & 20th and appear to have eradicated the issues.

WebCampus was unavailable between 3:11 and 4:46 AM, Monday, September 21, 2009.

As of 12:08 am (PDT), Sunday, September, 20, 2009, the issues with mail delivery in WebCampus have been resolved.  All mail that was sent while WebCampus was available with limited functionality has been delivered.The search and backup features are not available at this time.

September 18, 2009 - 5:47pm

Even though WebCampus is up and available, there is a known issue with WebCampus mail messages not being delivered at this time. Other alternative ways of communicating with your instructor is via email outside of WebCampus or via the discussion tool (if it has been enabled in your course).We expect the mail issue to be resolved around 5 PM on Saturday, Sept. 19th.

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. It has recently come to our attention that some key applications on campus are not fully compatible and supported with the latest release of Mac OS 10.6 Snow Leopard.
