Some users of WebCampus are experiencing a problem getting the WebCampus login page to load.  Server administrators are currently restarting WebCampus nodes to address the issue.  You may close your browser and try again as the issue is sporadic.

As of 3:20 pm on Wednesday, September 16, WebCampus is once again operational and available for use.  Patches provided by Oracle to address a memory leak on the database servers were applied, and the emergency WebCampus maintenance scheduled for midnight on Wednesday, September 16 is no longer needed.

We once again apologize for the inconvenience, and appreciate your patience while these issues were resolved.

Update:  A patch that needs to be applied to the database has taken longer than expected.  WebCampus is still unavailable, but expected to be back up and running soon. 

Due to the issues with WebCampus that have occurred over the past few days, we have scheduled emergency maintenance starting at Noon (PDT) today, Wednesday, September 16, 2009.

WebCampus was unavailable from approximately 1:30 - 3:00 AM  PDT Tuesday, September 16, 2009.  At this time, students who may have been completing assessments or assignments during this outage would have had their sessions interrupted.  If you need assistance in extending access to these students, please contact the IT Help Desk (702-895-0777 or 1-866-846-7088).

As you know, we’ve had several outages the past few days. To fix one of the issues, we will conduct emergency maintenance from midnight on Wednesday, September 16th, through 4 a.m. on Thursday, September 17th. During this four-hour maintenance window, WebCampus will not be available. Technicians will apply a patch provided by Oracle to fix a memory leak problem causing our database servers to fail.

Lotus Notes e-mail service will be unavailable Tuesday, Sept. 15th, between 11 p.m. and midnight. During that time, technical staff will apply a fix that IBM provided to address a software bug that causes large file attachments to slow mail delivery. While the issue has mainly effected Domino 6 and Domino 4 recently, it is important that the patch be applied to all mail servers, both primary and fail over servers.

We appreciate your patience during this maintenance.

We have experienced several WebCampus outages beginning Sunday, September 13th, as listed below. OIT is working with IBM and Oracle to troubleshoot the issues. We understand that students and faculty rely upon WebCampus 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In August we rebuilt the WebCampus infrastructure to increase its redundancy and capacity. This new configuration worked very well the first several weeks of school. Our technicians are working to remedy the issues listed below as quickly as possible.

It is important to keep UNLV student and employee data safe. One way to do that is by using strong passwords.

OIT staff will conduct maintenance on UNLV Wireless between 12 a.m. and 1:30 a.m. on Wednesday, September 2. Service will be intermittent during this time. This maintenance addresses problems with customers not being redirected to the UNLV Wireless log in screen, which prevented customers from using wireless. Please contact the IT Help Desk if you have any questions regarding this change.
