Resolved: Services unavailable due to DNS issue

Multiple services are not functioning correctly due to a problem with the domain naming service (DNS) on campus. IT Services staff are investigating the issue.

DNS is used to translate friendly web names (like www.uwindsor.ca) to network addresses so your computer can connect to the server. Symptoms of the problem include not being able to connect to Outlook, cannot browse websites on the Internet, unavailability of campus resources like Blackboard or UWinsite, or not able to remote desktop to on-campus computers.

Update: The problem was resolved at around 9:30am.

If you are still experiencing an issue, please contact the IT ServiceDesk at ext 4440.
