Security certificate expiration for email
We experienced an issue with the DLS email server, which started about 7pm 2/17/2011 regarding the expiration of one of the email servers security certificates. Users going to the webmail site found that the browser said that the site is not trusted and mobile devices may display an error syncing email. This issue was resolved by 10:45am Friday morning when the new 3 year email sever certificate was obtained and installed.

The air conditioning in the DLS datacenter failed overnight and temperature in the room rose well above normal for several hours. Core services were not affected however some non-essential servers were turned off in the morning to lessen the cooling burden. The AC unit was repaired and all services restored by 2:00pm.
