Kerberos Administration Service Outage Scheduled

DAY/DATE: Thursday, March 29, 2007

TIME: 9:00PM - 11:00PM EST



An outage has been scheduled for the Kerberos administration and password changing services. This outage is necessary to allow preventive maintenance on the Kerberos servers. During the announced outage window, users will be unable to change Kerberos passwords or perform other Kerberos administrative activities such as creating new instances.

In addition, the Kerberos master KDC may be completely disabled for short periods of time, which will result in slower-than-usual response time for logins and authentication to network services.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause. Please contact the SCS Help Desk at x8-4231 or send mail to with any questions or concerns.

Thank you for your attention,

SCS Help Desk
