Keeping up with computer system outages

In an attempt to keep you better informed about campus computing outages, we have a site available on the Web to show what Remedy (a campus-wide trouble call tracking system for computer support problems) tickets have been filed for system outages on campus. You may want to bookmark this page http://arsweb.unt.edu/shell/campuswide.pl

You can also get there by going to our main Website - http://www.unt.edu - and click on "Computing Resources" or simply go to http://www.unt.edu/computingresources.htm and click on "List of Current Campus System Outages Reported on Remedy." Addionally, this information is available from the Computing Center Helpdesk page, http://www.unt.edu/helpdesk/ , by clicking on "UNT CampusWide System Outage Status."

This will show what campus system outages have been reported on Remedy for campus-wide systems, as well as 20+ people out of service.

The page is divided into four groups of information.

  1. The first group is unplanned Campus-wide Systems down.

  2. The second group is unplanned 20+ people out of service.

  3. The third group is Planned outages (Change Requests) for Campus-wide or 20+ People.

  4. The fourth group is Recently Resolved cases.

To see the contents of the ticket, you will need to click on the Entry ID ticket number and login to Remedy.
