Additional ListServ issues

This came in from ITS Alerts at 4:10pm.

Listserv had a hardware failure at 12:30 today with one of its adapters that accesses disk. We replaced the failing adapter, but the replacement was bad. We then were able to get another adapter and that one is functioning normally. Listserv was back in operation as of 3:05 today. It is currently catching up with all the e-mail that has been queued. We will leave this alert open until Listserv is caught back up.

For more information, please contact ITS Help Desk ( ).
