Bug in traffic system

All dormitories except Hochschulstraße

Written by Justin Künzel, ​2018-08-24. Permalink

Currently our new user management system Pycroft has a bug: The traffic credit is not increased by 10GiB each day.
On the other hand no accounts are blocked for exceeding their traffic limit.

We are already working on fixing this bug. Please be patient!

During the next two days (2018-09-11 and 2018-09-12) a Studentenwerk contractor will repair some faulty fiber connections at Gret-Palucca-Straße. We do not have backup links available for all sites connecting through the affected fibres, which will cause some outages at the sites mentioned above.

Due to the short notice we don't have any more detail for now, we will give updates as soon as we know more.

Update (2018-09-11):
Around 9:10am GPS11 and Neuberinstraße went offline, ca. 10:20am the connections were reestablished. Besides some short interruptions to verify the fiber link quality there should be no further problems, by this evening the work should be finished.

During the next weeks – among other works – the university data centre needs to move some patch panels at Trefftz-Bau.

A result is a total network outage at Zeunerstraße. It will last for several hours.

This outage will most likely happen on 2018-09-10 or 2018-09-11. We will inform you as soon as more details are known to us.

Update (2018-09-01):
Due to a delivery problem the works are delayed, and thus the network outage is delayed, too.

Update (2018-09-06):
It has been confirmed that the outage will occur on Monday, 2018-09-10, from 8 to 11am.

Update (2018-09-10):
As of 10:30am the dormitory uplink has been reestablished and everything is back in working order.

Switch to new administration software 18./19.8.

Over the weekend, from Saturday 10 am, the listed student houses will switch over to a new administration software.

Due to these changes support requests will get delayed over the following week, there might be short network interruptions as well.

With the deployment of this new software years of development work come to fruition. In the future we hope to offer you faster support response times, more flexible membership management, and additional self-service features.
