The Harvard PIN system is currently having problems. This will affect access to harvie.harvard.edu, the HSPH Publisher and anything with an HUID/PIN login. Harvard University Information Technology is working on this and we will send out an email when it is resolved.
We are sorry for any inconvenience this may be causing.
** UPDATE from Harvard PIN **
To users of all administrative systems (Oracle, CREW, PeopleSoft, HUBS, GMAS, HirBERT, Brio, Hyperion, CAADS):
At 10:45 the 60 Oxford Street data center experienced a firewall issue that interrupted connectivity. This did affect PIN authentication and HU-LDAP as well as other applications.
Although systems including PIN and HU-LDAP have recovered, some lingering issues have been observed. We have been notified that there might be some additional network instability as the troubleshooting continues. This could result in some intermittent PIN and HU-LDAP service interruptions. Users should be aware that while they can log into systems, they may experience some interruptions throughout the afternoon.
This message will be updated later as more information becomes available.
We appreciate your patience as work through this issue.
