EMAS is working

The EMAS system on the Admissions Server seems to be stable. It stayed up all day yesterday and overnight. We're keeping a close eye on this server, but if you get kicked out of EMAS and/or lose your O: drive, please contact the Helpdesk ASAP.

EMAS not available

Users of EMAS are having problems this morning, continued from Friday. The server is having problems providing the O: drive, and this is making EMAS fail. It does not appear to be a hardware issue, so the good news is that the fix should be simple. We'll keep this blog updated, so check frequently. Sandy Tyndell is also the main contact for us, and she'll have the latest news.

After this, a reboot of your workstation will be required. Check this blog often to get an updated status.

APECS and Weblink are available 12:15 PM 11-3-2008

The APECS and Weblink applications are available again. Weblink has the maximum number of students signed on, so it may be slow in response. Thank you, ITS Dept.
