UAB IT took advantage of an unexpected service interruption earlier this month to upgrade the servers that support several campus systems, including eLAS and LMS.

This upgrade improved system performance and strengthened security.

These technical changes did result in a new URL for several services, so users may need to update their bookmarks. Affected systems included eLAS (the Electronic Leave Accrual System for monthly employees); the LMS (the learning system for faculty and staff); Sponsored Access to Accounting Systems (SASS); Benevolent Fund; and State Transparency (UAB Expenditure Transactions).

UAB IT recommends that users bookmark the Administrative Systems page to ensure seamless log in to key systems and to receive alerts and messages.

Several UAB systems — including eLAS and the LMS — are offline. UAB IT is investigating the cause and hopes to have the systems back up as soon as possible.

Systems affected by the outage include: the Electronic Leave Accrual System (eLAS), the web application in which monthly employees track time off; the faculty and staff Learning System (LMS); the state transparency system; and external access sponsorship.

UAB IT will update the Administrative Systems page when the systems become available.
