Temporary SMB access restriction

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

Last night a security problem was detected in the SMB server software we use for our group and home shares. In order to protect your data and our systems, we

temporarily restrict access to our group and home shares to the ETHZ IP address range

until security updates are available. If you’re outside the ETH network and need to access your data, use VPN. We expect the updates to be released later today or tomorrow and will then go back to world wide access.

Migration and Downtime of our Authentication Server on Tuesday, 6pm

Monday, December 1st, 2008

On Tuesday, the 2nd of December 2008, beginning at 6pm, we will migrate the services on our current authentication server to our high-availability cluster. During the migration you will not be able to login on any of our managed workstations, home and group drives or web services. Existing login sessions on workstations should survive the downtime, but it is usually better if you log out before migration. Additionally, *.dhcp.phys.ethz.ch dynamic hostnames will not work either.

Update, 22:30: Migration done. Everything should be back to normal.

Update, Wed Dec 03, 09:30: We found and corrected a problem with the web browser proxy.pac.
