VIP Document Management System Upgrade
Description of change: We are making an enhancement to the VIP Document Management System in order to provide better security for logins
Downtime window start: 5:00 PM
Downtime window end: 5:30 PM
Affected services: VIP Document Management System
Affected systems: vip.fau.edu, boc22coex01
Expected End-user impact: During the upgrade, VIP document system will be unavailable. After the upgrade, users will have to go through the shibboleth single sign on login (and most likely 2factor authentication) that is enabled on many other FAU services.
Emergency maintenance: mail server upgrades
Main fau mailservers are being incrementally upgraded to fix a bug. Impact should be minimal as most mail clients will retry and get a working mailserver. The mail hostnames that may be affected are as follows: smtp.fau.edu, smtpxy.fau.edu, bertx.fau.edu, berty.fau.edu, boc22esa02.fau.edu, nwesa02.fau.edu
We apologize for the inconvenience.
[Resolved] Delivery Status Notification (Failure)
From the period of 10am to 3pm today (3/2), some of you may have erroneously received a Delivery Status Notification (Failure) email for emails being sent to FAU recipients. The details would have said:
5.1.0 – Unknown address error 550-‘5.7.1 Relaying denied’
Rest assured that your message was properly delivered. The bounce back message that you received was in error due to improper reporting. We apologize for the inconvenience.
