Late Friday evening into Saturday CIS expereinced a failure of one of the VMWare servers in the stack they provide to us. A number of our internal services depend on the virtual machines hosted by that server, which resulted in intermittent issues through the department (website, dhcp, vpn, ssh, and others).

CIS has temporarily migrated the virtual machines to working hosts within the stack. This should return us to a working state, while they resolve the issue with the failed VMWare server. At this time all CS services are functional.

TStaff will work with CIS to ensure outages of this scale do not occur again in the future.  If you notice any other issues or have any concerns you'd like to relay to us, please email problem@cs.brown.edu.
