As a result of network changes made last week to correct a security vulnerability on our campus backbone we have discovered a bug in the current version of code. We will be reverting to an older version of code till a more stable version addressing the security vulnerability is available.

This will affect virtually all campus clients.

The following switches will not be affected as they were rebooted with the older code when problems occurred. e-chemistry
