This page announces scheduled maintenance periods and tracks unexpected system downtime for faculty who need to confirm student access.
There are no confirmed downtimes or issues.
The UCF network connection to the Internet is experiencing exceptionally high traffic load. This condition, which began late Sunday afternoon, can result in an on-campus network user being unable to reach an external site (e.g., Canvas). In most cases, if the network user attempts to connect to the off-campus site a second or third time it should work but may appear to be slower than normal.
CS&T network engineers are actively working with departmental IT managers to help reduce some of the high network traffic that has created this condition. Specific questions can be directed to the Service Desk at http://servicedesk.ucf.edu or 407-823-5117.
Beginning at 9:03PM on Thursday, 2/21, Webcoruses@UCF was partially down due to a technical issue. Webcourses@UCF was back to normal operations by 9:48PM.
There was a temporary LDAP error if you try to log in at http://webcourses.ucf.edu. Logging in through the myUCF portal (https://my.ucf.edu) worked fine.
Due to predicted severe weather conditions, there is a potential for Webcourses@UCF and Canvas services to be impacted over the next few days. Please notify your students and consider any due dates scheduled.
CS&T will restart the Webcourses@UCF (Blackboard Vista) server Friday September 28 at 5 am to install a critical update. The system will be available at 6 am. Thank you for your patience while we perform this necessary service.
Beginning 7:00 am Saturday morning September 1, UCF Facilities Improvement and Computer Services & Telecommunications will begin the first of two required major repairs to the electrical system in the UCF Data Center (the second repair event will occur one week later). The project engineers have assured us we should expect no downtime. There is, however, the potential for an unplanned power event affecting the building because of the extensive nature of the repairs. As a precaution, we urge you to be prepared for a potential Data Center outage that could be up to several hours in duration. An unplanned outage, should it occur, would impact virtually all core network services, including myUCF (PeopleSoft), Webcourses@UCF, network services (wired/wireless), VPN, Exchange email, and CS&T Shared Services Customers hosted in the Data Center.
If an unplanned outage should occur on Saturday, September 1, you can visit http://www.ucf.edu for information regarding service restoration.
If you have any questions, please contact the CS&T Service Desk – firstname.lastname@example.org or 407-823-5117.
Computer Services & Telecommunications
Webcourses@UCF will be brought down at 5 am to complete a necessary update before the fall term. Service is expected to be restored by 8 am. Thank you for your patience while we perform this necessary service.

The building housing UCF computer services experienced an environmental issue that required shutdown of all services beginning at 1:30 am on Saturday, May 12. All services were fully restored by 11 am. Some services may have been available before others; both Webcoruses@UCF and Tegrity were impacted.
