RSCH System Problems

We are currently having problems with some of our RSCH servers. All research and thesis account users should use rsch107, rsch108, rsch109, and rsch110 until further notice.

These system problems have also caused delays in creating new user accounts. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
