Beginning on Friday afternoon (Dec. 13, 2013), we began experiencing intermittent issues with instructors not being able to access the grading area for assignments. Additionally, blogs, journals, and wikis have been reported as being inaccessible for many users.
When attempting to grade or access these areas, an error of the following form is returned:
An error occurred. Contact the System Administrator.
For reference, the Error ID is 06992393-ec4a-4c2b-b52f-f89a528e50a2.

We were able to recreate the issue in the VC but verified that it was intermittent. In other words, it would return an error for several minutes and then begin working correctly again. Eventually the error would begin recurring. The issue has been reported to Blackboard and they are working to resolve it as quickly as possible.
UPDATE: This issue has been fully resolved. Grading and blogs/journal/wikis are fully functional. (10:00am 12/14/13)
