[Investigating] We continue to have issues affecting the departmental filestore service. Work has continued since the start to investigate and mitigate the impact. Currently, the filestore is in a read-only state. This means that affected filestores are available but new files cannot be added or files updated. Work has taken place to mitigate the impact on SITS and the Voicemail service. Edit access for the public website and the creation of new attachments in RX-Works are still affected but existing attachments can be read. Work is continuing today to try and resolve the problem.

July 22, 2021 10:16AM BST
[Investigating] Investigations are still underway with the supplier to understand the issue and possible options. Please be assured this is taking priority within IT Services and with senior University members. If you are encountering any related impact to a critical activity please do inform the IT Service Desk by calling 0117 428 2100 or using the IT self-service site at www.bristol.ac.uk/it-support.

[Monitoring] Work took place overnight to try and recover the services. Following the work, Departmental Filestore and dependent services appear to be working normally this morning. However, we are monitoring the situation closely. IT Services apologises for the inconvenience this outage to service has caused. Further actions will be taken to review the service.

Scheduled Maintenance

Schedule

February 5, 2021 2:32PM - May 28, 2021 2:32PM BST

Components

Microsoft Office 365 (Outlook, OneDrive)

Description

From Thursday 4 February we will be extending our use of Microsoft Intune to all staff personally owned mobile devices. From 28 April the same rules will be applied to postgraduate research students, members of the TSS service and students with staff roles that require IT access. Members of the above groups will need to install an app on their smartphone or tablets and ensure their device is on the latest version of the mobile operating system or latest security patches to be able to access University data through Microsoft 365 applications, for example Outlook, Teams, OneNote etc. This is part of a programme of necessary steps the University is taking to protect its digital assets and is a requirement of both existing University policy, and external security accreditations which we hold, and underpin the business. Guidance is available to staff on what action they need to take: https://uob.sharepoint.com/sites/itservices/SitePages/change-to-staff-personal-mobile-access-to-data.aspx
