Password changes and GoWMU
Posted by WMU OIT Help Desk on January 10, 2006

Currently, the GoWMU servers are pointing to the backup authentication server for synchronizing Bronco NetID accounts. There is now a latency between GoWMU (Luminus) and the authentication server whenever a password changes. The password change latency could be up to five minutes and, once again, only occurs when a password has been changed. The only system affected is GoWMU. All other systems are authenticating to the primary authentication server. Current plans are to keep GoWMU synchronizing with the backup server until the cause of the periodical fail overs can be determined. -ek
