Status Thursday evening 29th. The Main Building core network router (at the heart of the Birkbeck network) was moved today (29th December) as planned. A hardware fault developed following the move, and while now fixed, this has delayed the restoration of internal services, and services where there is no networking resilience (including to many of the departmental networks).

  • Websites using old web services and servers are now restored.
  • Remote access to services is now restored.
  • Access to BluQube is now restored.
  • Access to filestore and PC services is now restored.

Services remain at risk, and many remaining services will not now be available until Friday.
