To reduce the risk of potential problems resulting from the electrical work taking place tomorrow on the McNichols campus, all McNichols servers will be powered down.
TitanConnect, Blackboard, Internet Access, all udmercy.edu web services and TitanNet will be shut-down around 3:00 AM and brought back up within 2 hours after the power has been restored. Critical servers will be brought online first and will be available soon after the power has been restored.
During this outage, incoming e-mail may be queued on the sender's e-mail system or bounced back to the original sender depending on how the sender’s e-mail servers are configured to handle messages to downed sites.
Access to the servers at the Corktown campus will not be affected by this outage however access to McNichols based servers will not work. Internet service from Corktown will continue to work fine for sites outside of the udmercy.edu domain.
Access to the servers at the Law campus will not be affected by this outage however access to McNichols based servers will not work. Internet service from Law will continue to work fine for sites outside of the udmercy.edu domain.
