The network outage that affected most services on the Springfield campus, including the Cheek Hall data center, has been resolved. All services should have been restored as of 9:22 a.m. this morning. If you are aware of any outages, please report them to Networking@MissouriState.edu immediately.
The core circuit card that failed two days ago and was disabled, today had to physically be removed from the router to restore services. Backup, redundant interfaces are handling all of the load while we seek a replacement card from the manufacturer. We may be required to perform diagnostics on this card which would likely occur on our next scheduled “down day”. Such days are reserved for upgrading and testing various systems and are ideal needs such as this. We apologize for this outage and do not believe it will happen again.
Thank you, Mark
