Keep yourself updated with the latest news from the SHS board
Last updated 1st of November 2023
On the morning of the 14th of June, we lost power to parts of our system and the internet went down. This was fixed during the evening later the same day. On the morning of the 15th of June, one of our core-switches died, and since we had services connected to it that were not redundant, the internet went down then as well. During that afternoon we found out that our second, redundant core-switch did not want to start up again after a shutdown, leaving us with no powered on switches at all. We also found out that the third one we had in reserve didn't want to start either. During the following week, we at SHS spent days and nights working on a solution to get the internet back up and running again, but the solution was not pretty.
All student apartments previously being supplied with internet by us should have access to the internet.
Our support system.
What's not working:
A lot of internal tools for remote access and monitoring.
Giving a fixed public IP address to an apartment.
The move-in function on the website.
Where does it leave us:
The move-in function is down, but with the current, temporary, system you will still be granted internet access without its usage. You will however need to move-in when the non-temporary system is in place. As you do not have a static public IP address, you cannot host a Minecraft server (or similar) without some virtual lan software. We might also be a bit slow on the support-side.
- How could you let this happen!
SHS as a student organization has neglected the maintenance of its infrastructure for many years. Something was bound to happen sooner or later, we were just unlucky by what it happened to, and how much of it was affected. We were aware that this was a problem before this happened and we had started working on improving the system. We were not working on improving the parts that died though.
- What will you do to not let it happen again?
The core part of our infrastructure that does the heavy lifting is old. When buying replacements for what died, we will include other parts of this core-network and replace them as well.
- How can I help?
Become involved. Even if you don't know anything about networking, we need people doing stuff like accounting (if you are an economy student and want to help, contact us, there is a reason why we aren't studying it), design, or support. You don't need any prior knowledge working with the support, only that you are willing to learn.
ATTENTION ALL STUDENTS!
On Wednesday the 31st of March at 18:00 SHS will be holding its annual meeting.
Since matters of great importance concerning your internet connection will be discussed, it is important that you as a member attend.
The meeting will be streamed online via our Discord server (link below) in the voice channel named “Stormöte-stream”.
Discord Link: https://discord.com/invite/UgsfXzY
If you want to bring a motion, you will have to send it to us at least seven (7) days before the meeting, that is 24th of March 2021. Motions should be sent through e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Agenda annual general meeting 2021-03-31:
Proposed bylaw revisions:
Kapitel 4 §7
“Föreningen håller årsmöte någon gång under perioden 1 februari till 31 mars. Tid och plats bestäms noggrannare av styrelsen.“ to be changed to “Föreningen håller årsmöte någon gång under perioden 1 februari till 30 april. Tid och plats bestäms noggrannare av styrelsen.“ By increasing the time frame new boards will have more time to prepare for the annual general meeting as well as avoiding the annual meeting from coinciding with exam weeks.
Kapitel 4 §10
“Föreningen håller höstmöte någon gång under perioden 1 november till 15 december. Tid och plats bestäms noggrannare av styrelsen.“ to be changed “Föreningen håller höstmöte någon gång under perioden 1 oktober till 15 december. Tid och plats bestäms noggrannare av styrelsen.” This will give the board a greater time frame to host the autumn general meeting.
