On Wednesday, December 7th at approximately 9:20 AM, power to the Hill Center data center was inadvertently disconnected, resulting in a power outage that lasted approximately 20 minutes. Due to the way in which the power was interrupted, existing backup and generator systems were bypassed, thereby causing the data center to completely lose power. Power was restored by 9:40 AM and most systems and services were restored within the next hour. OIT is reviewing the incident and will be implementing measures to make certain that this type of event will not reoccur. We apologize for the disruption that this outage caused.
On the morning of Wednesday, December 7th, there was a brief power outage in the data center in Hill Center (Piscataway). A number of IT services, including the Help Desk phone system, are in the process of being restored.
We apologize for the inconvenience.

On October 23, 2016, OIT will roll out a new procedure for configuring your Rutgers Connect account to have a default address other than your email@example.com.
