User Authentication Service Maintenance

by on October 11, 2014

Beginning at 3:00 am Thursday, October 16, 2014, for approximately four hours, NJIT’s user directory and authentication services will undergo maintenance. Password management and directory entry updates will be disabled while maintenance is performed.  Authentication services are expected to remain available during this period, however, brief outages will be required.

During an outage access to the following services will be interrupted: Highlander Pipeline, Banner, Moodle, Webmail by Google, VPN, MAP-Works, 25 Live, CDSLink, Postini Mailhygiene, Activity Insight for Faculty.

Given the nature of this maintenance we would like to remind the community of the following:

  • Always be wary of electronic solicitations where you are asked to provide personally identifiable information or accounts and/or passwords. Providing such information may result in identity theft, which can be expensive to resolve, detrimental to your credit rating, and extremely inconvenient.
  • NJIT will never ask you to REPLY to an e-mail with private information (SSN, date of birth, user IDs/passwords).
  • NJIT log-on credentials will only be asked at the legitimate point of entry to a NJIT system (e.g. Highlander Pipeline, Moodle, Webmail by Google) when you have actively initiated entry to the system. Be wary of providing log-in credentials unless you have initiated the action.

Maintenance is expected to be completed and services restored by 7:00 am.
