The NYU authentication outage has been resolved.
Please be advised that all NYU-supported services that require a NetID and password login are currently slowness and/or intermittent interruptions due to an LDAP major incident. This issue is under investigation and updates will be posted to the IT Service Status page and the appropriate notification lists as they become available.
Service status information is available here:
Tecplot is looking for feedback from users of their software. If you're interested, a single-page survey is available here:
The crunchy4 server is currently down. Systems Group is determining whether it will be possible to get it back online, but presently there is no predicted return-to-service time.
Please email email@example.com if you had data stored on the /scratch directory of the server, and we'll attempt to recover it.

Linux compute nodes and desktop machines will be rebooted on Thursday, June 8th for software and security updates. This includes both RHEL 6 and CentOS 7 systems. Updates will be applied to machines between 7:00 pm and midnight. In an effort to try and minimize any corrupted files or lost work, please save all your data and log out of any Linux systems before 7:00 pm.
The following is a list of machines that already have the updates, so you can test critical work beforehand:
We will also be bringing down several compute nodes early to begin the process of converting them from Red Hat 6 to CentOS 7. The following machines will be shut down at 10:00 am on Thursday:
The upgrade of crunchy6 will be delayed until the week of June 19th, to allow extra time for those who have not yet tested their code on CentOS 7.
If you have any processes running on these hosts, please migrate them to other servers before this time. We expect they will be back online by the end of the day on Thursday.

The service (s) listed below has now been restored:
- NYU-NET (NYU IT) in New York
Thank you for your cooperation and patience, and our apologies for any inconvenience that this may have caused.
Some areas of NYU are currently experiencing WiFi degradtion. ITS is working on the problem and will be posting updates on their status page:
4/21/2017 1:00 p.m
Mail service has been restored.
4/21/2107 11:35 a.m.
Some users may currently be unable to access their CIMS email. The Systems Group is working on the problem.
The public black and white printer on the 4th floor, bwpr09, became unavailable around lunchtime on Thursday April 13th. It has been restored to the network, but any jobs sent prior to 3:30 p.m. were deleted and should be resent.
All versions of python-3.x should be invoked using the binary name
"python3" instead of just "python".
If, for example, a user logged into a CIMS server enters
"module load python-3.5.2" and then types "python,"
they would end up using the python in /usr/bin/python (python2.6.6).
This is in keeping with the convention that "python3"
be used to invoke all versions of python 3.x
and with the expectation that both python2 and python3
should be able to coexist -- even within
the same terminal (after a module load).
Python as the name for a python3 binary is not valid
and goes against the convention set out by the python developers.
For example, the header of a python file using v3.5 might look like:
The NYU wireless is currently experiencing an outage. More information can be found at:
Linux compute nodes and desktop machines will be rebooted on Thursday, April 6th. This includes both RHEL 6 and CentOS 7 systems. Updates will be applied to machines between 7:00 pm and midnight. In an effort to try and minimize any corrupted files or lost work, please save all your data and log out of any Linux systems before 7:00 pm. We urge you to test any packages that are critical to your work and let us know if you encounter any problems before the updates occur. A list of already updated machines is as follows:
Compute nodes and desktop machines running CentOS 7 will be rebooted on . This does not include hosts running RHEL 6. Updates will be applied to machines between 7:00pm and midnight. In an effort to try and minimize any corrupted files or lost work, please save all your data and logout of any Linux CentOS 7 systems before 7:00pm. We urge people to test any packages that are critical to their work and let us know if they encounter any problems before the updates occur. A list of already updated machines is as follows:
There was an issue with incoming email from outside that may have resulted in some mail being returned to the sender. The issue has been resolved, but if you were expecting something you have not received, you may want to have the sender resend it. Sorry for the inconvenience.
