MySCSU upgrade

The migration to a new campus portal system began last night (along with other related network stuff). As of last night, web access to email, network drives (U:), and campus WebCT was disrupted, and many students had trouble logging into the library computers at all. As of this morning access to email via email software like Eudora, and the network drives is restored, but the web email is still not working as of 9:30 this morning. (When I can get on at all, I get a "too many users" message--but I wouldn't take that literally right now.) The new system does not appear to like the Firefox browser, and requires pop-ups be allowed for (instructions appear on the error message). I have not been able to test WebCT.

OnlineCSU WebCT and access to the library databases have not, and should not, be affected by this change, as both are controlled from separate servers.

Here is the official message from campus IT, sent Tuesday:

The Campus Pipeline to Luminis migration will begin at 5:30 PM on Wednesday, August 3.

Access to the MySCSU portal, email, WebCT, and personal web directories (U: drive) will not be available at that time. Access to all services, except the MySCSU portal, should be available by 12:00 midnight. The new MySCSU portal will be available by 12:00 noon on Thursday, August 4.

Thank you for your patience during this migration. We hope you will enjoy the look and feel of the new MySCSU campus portal, which will still be available at the URL
