UW Information Technology is aware of a delay for email delivery to Exchange users from other mail services (Deskmail, Google, Yahoo, etc.) which began at approximately 8am on 6/30/15. UW Information Technology engineers are investigating. There is currently no estimate for when the problem will be resolved. We will update this notice as information becomes available.

This coming 3-day weekend I will be performing some operations involving the School’s main file server and the 4 remaining “groups” shares still on the CFR domain.
On Friday July 3rd around 7am the file server main.sefs.uw.edu will be unavailable for a short period of time while I migrate it over to the updated host cluster. This process is similar to a long reboot and should have no other impact.
Then I will begin migrating our last 4 “groups” shares from the old CFR system to main.sefs.uw.edu. Users directly impacted by this have been contacted via email with the specifics.
Please remember to save and close out of any files either within \\main.sefs.uw.edu or \\cfr.washington.edu\main\groups before leaving for the long weekend.
Thanks and have a fun and safe 4th of July!
Users should once again be able to access the share. If you continue to encounter any issues, try closing the Windows Explorer window and reopening it from “my computer” or any shortcut you were previously using. If issues persist please contact the helpdesk.
SEFS IT is aware of and investigating an issue accessing the cfr.washington.edu\main\groups share. An update will be posted when more information is available.
UWIT has rolled back changes they applied this morning and I am now investigating the extent of issues remaining. Most services should now be back up.
