CCS will perform a Tier 1 Maintenance of the Web Access Management/Single Sign On (WAM/SSO) service this weekend from 6 PM Friday June 22nd to 12 PM (noon) Saturday June 23rd. It will be followed by a series of Tier 2 maintenances with no or minimal impact throughout the rest of the weekend.
While we will strive to keep the selected WAM/SSO-protected services, e.g., Gryph Mail, CourseLink, main U of G website and the websites behind the main U of G web gateways available throughout this maintenance they may become unavailable during some stages of the maintenance. We will evaluate the impact continuously and take corrective steps. The rest of the services dependent on WAM/SSO , e.g., departmental webserversalthough, will be unavailable throughout the maintenance.
If you have any questions or comments about this maintenance please contact the CCS Information Security team via firstname.lastname@example.org
The maintenance progress will be communicated via the CCS System Status Page at http://uoguelph.statuspage.io
