On June 5, 2018 around 1:30PM, senior SysAdmins noticed an issue with DNS records pertaining to acm.cs.uic.edu. From initial investigation, the DNS record is now being overridden by UIC DNS records. At this time, acm.cs.uic.edu is not currently accessible due to an incorrect DNS configuration. The cause for this change is still unknown.
SysAdmins have contacted the appropriate parties to help resolve this issue, however we do not currently have an ETA of when this issue will be fixed. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
Services requiring the acm.cs.uic.edu domain will unfortunately be inaccessible at this time.
Currently affected services:
- All services hosted on acm.cs.uic.edu.
- Including, but not limited to the following:
- Email Services
- Hosting Services
- Secure Shell
- Mailing Lists
As a temporary solution, you may use lug.cs.uic.edu to resolve to the same server. (e.g.: If you need to SSH into our servers, do so with lug.cs.uic.edu)
If you have any questions, please let an ACM/LUG SysAdmin know by emailing sig-sysadmin [at] acm.cs.uic.edu or by messaging the #sig-sysadmin channel on Slack.
Sorry for the inconvenience,
ACM/LUG Systems Administrator 2016-2018
