Following is information about the status of known university-wide OS X 10.10 Yosemite issues at Indiana University.

Application Issue description Workaround
IU Secure
Some people have reported difficulties staying connected to IU Secure.
Upgrade to the latest version of Yosemite.
DHCP registration
You may experience long delays or timeouts when registering to DHCP.
If you have Firefox or Chrome, register to DHCP with one of those instead of Safari.
Reinstalling or recovering Yosemite
To reinstall or recover Yosemite, you must have an active Internet connection.
If you are on campus at IU, UITS recommends using the wired Ethernet network instead of wireless. However, if IU Secure is your only option, see Connect to an IU wireless network in macOS if I am booted from my Recovery HD Once you have Yosemite installed, you can use IU Secure normally (e.g., for installation of software updates).
ADS-joined Macs won't boot after a power outage
ADS-joined Macs that shut down due to a power outage may not be able to complete the startup process once power is restored.
Start the computer from the recovery partition and choose the option to reinstall Yosemite.
Microsoft Lync 2011
After upgrading to Yosemite, Microsoft Lync 2011 14.0.9 may be unable to stay connected.
