PLEASE NOTE THE UNUSUAL DAY AND DURATION OF THIS SERVICE OUTAGE.
On Tuesday, May 9, 2017, SCS Computing Facilities staff will perform maintenance on the Kerberos authentication servers (KDCs) to upgrade the master KDC to a new operating system version. These servers provide authentication for UNIX logins, WebISO, and most SCS services.
Normal Kerberos authentication services are expected to remain available throughout the maintenance period. However, Kerberos administrative services, including the Instance Manager, password- changing services, and UNIX system installation, will be unavailable during this period.
Please contact the SCS Help Desk at x8-4231 or send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns regarding this maintenance period.
Thank you for your attention,
SCS Help Desk
