The University of Maryland’s IT division is working to restore a database used for wireless networking after an outage began this morning.

At about 8:30 a.m., a disruption occurred that prevented some users from accessing the campus WiFi network, vice president and chief information officer Jeff Hollingsworth wrote in a campuswide email.

DIT is restoring the database alphabetically based on users’ directory IDs. During the outage, Hollingsworth suggested that people use the umd-temp network — a temporary network that will be available through the outage — or umd-guest.
