EZproxy upgrade – Sunday, April 12, 2015

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Library Systems will be performing necessary security upgrades to the EZproxy server on Sunday morning during regularly scheduled downtime (6 am to 10 am) on 4/12/2015.E-Zed-Proxy makes off-campus access easy.

There will be no off-campus access for the Library’s subscription databases, e-books, and e-journals during this time.  There will be intermittent access interruptions on campus, too.  I expect the whole process to last no more than one hour.  I apologize for any inconvenience.

This should be done by 10 am.

Polycom software issue resolved

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Dear colleagues,

An update to last Wednesday’s issues with the Polycom software.

We have resolved the issue with the Polycom software and it is now fully operational. You can continue to use it with your Middlebury/Monterey network accounts, as you did before the outage last Wednesday.

The issue was caused by a faulty Microsoft update that was automatically applied to some of our servers.

Best,
Petar
