On Wednesday, December 15, 2010, SCS Computing Facilities staff will move Kerberos, WebISO, and Jeeves servers to the Gates-Hillman Center machine room. This process will result in a partial outage of these services.

The Jeeves service will also be unavailable during this time. In addition, users may experience intermittent outages or slowdowns of Kerberos and/or WebISO authentication services.

Thank you for your attention,
