Upcoming Outages

 UMKC Tegrity moving to cloud based service (7/1/2015 12:01:00 AM - 7/1/2015 8:01:00 AM)

UMKC tegrity will be moving to cloud based service. During this time tegrity will be off line. All services will be back on line after 8 AM. The migration will start at 12:01 AM and end at 08:00 AM.

How will it impact UMKC faculty/student access:
Tegrity move is mostly backend server and data migration so end users impact is minimal to slow tegrity load initially. However, page load will improve significantly. We are changing DNS settings, which means initially the browser will take longer to load tegrity site. After initial log on the browser should load tegrity at normal speed. Faculty and Students still access their tegrity recordings via UMKC Blackboard or Moodle. If you experience issues with slow browser loading tegrity then please contact its@umkc.edu.

Tegrity app user:
After the migration, users with apps (both iOS/Android) needs to update and also re-enter their username and password. This one time setup will ensure that users can now connect to new cloud based service successfully. iOS and Android app download page: http://www.umkc.edu/ia/it/tegrity/tegrity-app.aspx


Please contact Ali Haider for any tegrity technical support: tegrity@umkc.edu

Current and Upcoming Change Management Notices

 KC-DC06 demotion and reinstall (6/29/2015 9:00:00 PM)

KC-DC06 will be demoted Monday tonight, and will be OS reinstalled Tuesday morning. Re-promotion to DC will be done late Tuesday, and may take until Wednesday morning depending on replication delays.

Any services directly pointing to KC-DC06 should be pointed to kc.umkc.edu for LDAP, which should ensure that a live DC is used for resolution.

 Kerberos encryption types will be changed to disable weak DES and RC4 encryption (7/15/2015 12:01:00 AM)

In order to increase the strength of Kerberos authentication, legacy DES and RC4 encryption will be disabled. Examples of why this can be a problem:
https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn789928.aspx

This setting will disable Windows XP and 2003 authentications, so all such systems need to be removed from Active Directory prior to this change.

If you are aware of any services which require legacy Kerberos authentication, please let me know, so that we can determine what mitigations may be available. Any non-Windows machines could be impacted if they do not use AES encryption for Kerberos communications.

 Enable UAC on ILE Systems (8/3/2015 9:00:00 AM)

As the final step of moving the ILE systems into the Labs OU structure UAC will be enabled on all ILE systems during the second summer intersession.
