[UPDATED] Downtime Notice: acm.cs.uic.edu [September 27, 2018]

Hello,

On September 27, 2018 around 3:00PM, an unforeseen change caused the main acm.cs.uic.edu website to become inaccessible/slow. 

Affected services:

  • The website: acm.cs.uic.edu.
  • ACM Email may be delayed.

At this time, acm.cs.uic.edu and related services should be back up.  A recent change by ACCC caused routing to be treated differently, causing some traffic to be routed out of incorrect interfaces.  These issues has since been resolved.

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,
Chase Lee
Alumni Systems Administrator

NOTICE: Unexpected Service Disruption - July 14-16, 2018

Hello,

On July 14, 2018 around 1:00PM, SysAdmins noticed authentication and acm.cs.uic.edu became inaccessible.  From initial investigation, the HVAC system was suffering an unexpected water shutoff.  The main AC unit in the server room is not functioning, allowing temperatures to rise in excess of 116°F.

SysAdmins have contacted the appropriate parties to help resolve this issue. We expect this issue to be resolved by Monday, July 16, 2018.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Due to high temperatures, ACM/LUG services will be running in limited capacity.  The majority of servers will be powered down for the weekend to mitigate any catastrophic hardware failures.

Currently affected services:

  • All services hosted on acm.cs.uic.edu.
    • Including, but not limited to the following:
      • Email Services
      • Hosting Services
      • Secure Shell
      • GitLab
      • IRC
      • Mailing Lists
  • Monitor Wall
  • ACMAPP Kubernetes Cluster
  • Cuda machine
  • Test Servers
  • Non-critical subdomain machines

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.

NOTICE: Unexpected Service Disruption - June 5, 2018

Hello,

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
      • GitLab
      • IRC
      • 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.
