For a short time overnight and early morning of May 16th, logging into most systems (including Moodle and eduroam) was unavailable. Service is restored, though there may be a few intermittent issues through the morning.
We recommend that you attempt a system restart as a preliminary measure before reaching out to the Technology Help Desk if you are experiencing challenges.
Lyonnet-Encrypt and wired internet connections are stable.
If you have any questions, contact the Technology Help Desk at 413-538-2600 or email@example.com.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
For a short time overnight and early morning of April 23, logging into most systems (including Moodle and eduroam) was unavailable. Service is restored, though there may be a few intermittent issues through the morning.
For a time overnight and early morning April 23rd, Shibboleth (single sign-on) login was unavailable. It is mostly restored, though a few services may have some lingering issues, notably including eduroam.
Systems that use Shibboleth login including Moodle, Financial Aid Online, and most things other than my.mtholyoke and Google services are experiencing problems this morning.
You may access Financial Aid Online using the new single sign-on link provided below
What this means for you:
There is a planned outage of the Financial Aid Online portal from Friday, April 1st at 5pm until Monday, April 4th at 8:30am so Student Financial Services can implement a server upgrade that will allow current students to log on to their student financial aid portal, Financial Aid Online, using single sign-on.
Working with the Five College Network team the issues connecting to SolarWinds has been corrected.
SolarWinds Service Desk, our LITS Help Desk software, is experiencing intermittent slow-down and even connection failure. We are in contact with the vendor and our colleagues in the 5Colleges. A work around is to connect via an alternate WiFi, one NOT part of the MHC network. For those staff working from home you can disconnect from the VPN and use helpdesk.mtholyoke.edu.
LITS reports as of Monday evening, 8/2/21, that all MHC services impacted by the electrical outage today have been restored. Please restart your computer if you notice any inconsistencies. We are sorry for the interruption in workflow, and appreciate your patience as our team worked to a final resolution.
Most MHC logins are fixed, including Embark, Handshake, Library Catalog, Moodle, Pathways, Slate. There may be some remaining account login problems; we are seeing if we can pre-emptively identify and correct these.
Eduroam continues to be unavailable, we recommend LyonNet-Encrypt
We are continuing to experience issues related to the electrical problem from earlier today.
The key primary services impacted are listed below. We are working to restore them ASAP:
Moodle, Drupal, Pathways, FoodPro, Embark, The Gates, Slate, PageUp, Library Catalog, and Eduroam (Wifi)
Single sign-on (SSO) to MHC Login Services will be enabled on Tuesday, March 16th. Disruption to campus services will be limited. If you experience any errors logging into MHC Systems please refresh the page.
More information is available on the LITS News Page:
A planned server change at 9:00 am on Thursday, 2/25 may impact a small number of people. Some users may have trouble logging into Hampshire College’s Moodle. Contact the Help Desk if you need assistance.
Maintenance & Testing for Shibboleth Services is now complete. Ongoing issues should be reported to the LITS Help Desk.
Planned testing of configuration changes of campus login services will take place during the day on Monday, 2/15/2021. Each test should last less than a minute. Should you encounter issues logging in, please wait 1-2 minutes and try again.
