SystemIssue/StatusReported Time/DateExpected Resolution

Update - Tuesday, July 01, 2014 - A configuration change has been suggested by Oracle to correct this issue.  This workaround is currently being tested and will be implemented as soon as possible.  We apologize for the inconvenience. We will continue to update you as more information becomes available.

Update - Tuesday, June 17, 2014 – We are continuing to experience problems with the lookup, drill-down and search function in UTShare. We apologize for the inconvenience. We will continue to update you as more information becomes available.

We are currently experiencing problems with UTShare.  Users may experience significant delays when performing a lookup and/or search. When the user selects the search, lookup or drill-down option, a spinning circle appears showing that the system is processing.  The process continues without completing. This issue may impair users when attempting to attach or upload documents.  If you experience this issue, we recommend temporarily switching to an alternate web browser (Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox) to complete your work.  You may have to alternate between browsers if the issue continues in your alternate browser.Technicians are aware of the issue and are working to resolve it as quickly as possible. Consider joining the Automatic Notification on the left side of the System Status Page so that you can receive notifications about all system outages and resolutions.
