Resolved - Microsoft has rolled back an update that caused the read/unread issue. Here is the final notice:

Final Status: We've disabled the update that introduced the code issue and have confirmed impact remediation. While impact is remediated, we're continuing to deploy a fix to the affected infrastructure to prevent issues like this from occurring again.

User Impact: When using the Outlook desktop client in Online mode, messages may have not appeared to be correctly marked as read or unread until the user refreshed the current folder. As a workaround, users could have switched between folders to see an updated list of read and unread items in Outlook. Messages appeared correctly in other clients such as Outlook on the web or mobile apps during this incident.

Start Time: Tuesday, August 16, 2016, at 12:23 AM UTC
End Time: Friday, August 19, 2016, at 6:05 PM UTC

Preliminary Root Cause: As part of our efforts to improve service performance, an update was deployed to the affected infrastructure; however, the update caused a code issue which resulted in impact.

Next Steps:
- We're reviewing our monitoring services to find ways to reduce detection time and to improve our automated recovery processes.
- We're reviewing our deployment and provisioning procedures to help prevent this kind of problem in the future.
Aug 23, 06:33 EDT
Monitoring - Microsoft has reported an issue where Outlook Desktop clients that run in Online mode do not appear to update the read/unread status properly. They are currently deploying a fix.

Currently, users who are able to switch to Offline mode or who switch between folders will see the updated read/unread items correctly. Messages should appear correctly in other clients (Outlook Web, mobile apps, etc).

Resolved - As of 1600 this afternoon, the campus network has been restored to full functionality. The campus backbone team has determined that the firewall pair that exist between the Rich Building and the Global Learning Center both went active whereby the normal functional state of the pair is active/standby. The impetus for the change in state was a spike in network traffic and corresponding high CPU consumption, the root cause of which is still unknown.

The campus network team will continue to investigate the incident for root cause, but currently the network is functioning in a normal state. If you have questions or are still experiencing issues, e-mail or please call 404-894-7173.
Aug 19, 16:29 EDT
Monitoring - Campus network connectivity ( offsite, wireless, and intra-campus ) has been restored as of 1543. However, the network team is is looking to find a root cause as well as continuing to monitor the network for any issues. Please e-mail or call 404-894-7173 if you see any outstanding problems or have questions.
Aug 19, 15:51 EDT
Identified - Initial diagnosis of the network issues indicates a possible conflict between a firewall pair located in the Global Learning Center and Rich. The network team is continuing to investigate in an effort to find a solution. Impact so far has been wireless connectivity, off campus network connectivity, and inta network connectivity.
Aug 19, 15:26 EDT
Investigating - The campus network began having issues Friday afternoon at 1457. The campus network team is currently investigating the issue and is working to resolve the problem as soon as possible.

In progress - Scheduled maintenance is currently in progress. We will provide updates as necessary.
Aug 16, 06:45 EDT
Scheduled - A package for Financial Aid will be replaced in Banner production at 6:45 AM on Tuesday, August 16th. This package fixes a problem with loan origination fees for which no manual workaround is available. There will be no downtime for Banner by applying this patch. The patch is needed to fix the issue for Financial Aid.

The only office that will be affected by this work is the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid. The package being replace is not used by any module outside of Financial Aid. Thus, events like Phase II registration, which depend upon Banner, are not expected to be affected by this work.
