Completed - The scheduled maintenance has been completed.
Oct 17, 02:14 EDT
In progress - Scheduled maintenance is currently in progress. We will provide updates as necessary.
Oct 17, 00:01 EDT
Scheduled - The campus perimeter firewall service will be undergoing maintenance.

During this maintenance window, CCS will implement a new global security policy on the campus perimeter firewall to improve the University’s security posture.

The new policy will only allow “known-good” traffic on ports 80 and 443, which is browsing based traffic initiated from the Internet to campus as well as a pre-defined exception list of services, and block everything else. It will not change the behaviour of outbound traffic from campus to the internet. Services hosted at the CCS Data Center will not be affected.

For more information, please contact the CCS Help Centre by email to ithelp@uoguelph.ca or visit https://www.uoguelph.ca/ccs/ccs-help.

Resolved - This issue was tied to use of the Firefox web browser with the issue not appearing when using other browsers. It is also not clear that all Firefox users are experiencing the problem. The issue is being closed with the recommendation to access OneDrive, OneNote, etc. with an alternate browser.

The problem is being pursued with Microsoft in order to obtain a more permanent solution.
Oct 16, 14:50 EDT
Investigating - CCS has identified multiple error messages when accessing SharePoint sites, OneDrive folders and files, and OneNote spaces through the web-based version of Office 365 (accessible through GryphMail). These issues have been reported to Microsoft and we are awaiting further information. Desktop syncing of OneDrive and OneNote files seems to be unaffected, as does accessing the Files section of Channels and Teams. We will report back with more information as soon as we understand the scope of the issue and hear back from Microsoft.

Please report any concerns to the IT Help Desk by contacting ithelp@uoguelph.ca or at extension 58888.
