Current Incidents

July 31: Network & Internet outage || RESOLVED

  • The July 31 network outage has been resolved. 

    Service was initially restored at 2:47 pm with a single, brief blip following at 4:50 pm when we rebooted some network equipment. 

    At this point all systems are working normally, and we do not expect the problem to return.  If you encounter any lingering issues, please report them to the IT Service Desk at https://www.ohio.edu/oitech or 740-593-1222.

    We have implemented some new system monitoring techniques based on what we have learned from this outage.  Additional details about the problem’s cause and our steps to reduce the likelihood of future outages will be available once we complete our internal analysis.
