Winter Break Network Maintenance

In advance of winter break, I wanted to share a handful of dates when we’ll have network maintenance that will affect network, wireless, and/or internet availability within the district during the break.  

January 2nd, 2018

  • Switch maintenance at Liberty High and Northwest Junior High will cause network disruptions in those buildings between 6 AM and 8 AM.  Network and internet services may be unavailable during this time period.
  • Further work will be done throughout the day in the following buildings, but we do not expect the work to result in network outages or downtime: Alexander ES, West HS, Liberty HS, Educational Services Center, South East JH, and North Central JH.

KACE Outage Update

As everyone is aware, we have been experiencing some issue with the KACE (KBOX) system both in the administrator portals and the Help Desk configuration. Due to a certificate error, some people have been receiving a message that KACE is unavailable due to too many redirects within the portal.

Resolved: ICCSD Experiencing Network/Internet Disruption

*UPDATE: 1:21 PM, 10/28/16*
Normal internet and network operation has now been restored district-wide.  We identified a network policy that was creating an inordinate amount of traffic.  That traffic flow has now been stopped, and other network indicators are now within normal ranges.  We appreciate your patience as we worked through this problem.   

8:00 AM: The ICCSD network is currently experiencing a networking / internet service disruption as of 8 AM on October 28th.

We believe that we have isolated the issue and are working to fix the problem.  I will provide an update here as soon as the problem is resolved.  We appreciate your patience in the meantime.
