If you are trying to log in to D2L, and you are getting this page, please shut down your computer and reboot, then try to log in again.
The D2L system has been available since 8:55 AM on Sunday, July 29, but a few users are experiencing log in issues that may be resolved by rebooting your computer. If you continue to have problems after rebooting, contact the helpdesk at http://d2l.custhelp.com or 877-466-6728.
Be prepared to provide the helpdesk staff with the name of your Internet Service Provider (ISP) as the ability to get the D2L login page is related to the way the ISP handles the domain name and IP. You may need to reset your ISP's cable modem box. The helpdesk staff can assist you.
D2L will be unavailable on Sunday, July 29 from 5:00 AM to 9:00 AM when we switch to our D2L failover system. If we complete all our processes and testing early, the system may be made available to users before 9:00 AM. The status will be posted at http://status.mnscu.edu/desire2learn/

This service interruption is needed to replace an older data storage/server subsystem, which is going end of life, with a new database subsystem (Exadata from Oracle). This new subsystem will help handle the growing data storage demands of our system, improve performance, and help to ensure smooth semester startups.
Locally-maintained campus applications will not be affected by the outage, unless they require access to ISRS.
STUDENT IMPACT: During this time, students will not be able to submit applications, search for classes, register, or pay for classes.
STAFF/FACULTY IMPACT: All student, faculty, and administrative applications will be affected, including student eServices (web registration, class schedule, web grades, web payment, student housing, etc.). BRIO Management Reports and Dashboards will be unavailable, and REPL data access and ad-hoc queries will not be possible. System applications such as HR-SCUPPS, Finance, Accounting, Student Housing, Student Payroll, etc., will also not be available.
We appreciate your understanding when this type of outage affects access to our systems.
