UPDATE: January 27, 2021  1:12pm

A large number of Scholar accounts have been accidentally removed during overnight processing. This manifests as "LDAP authorization check failed", or "Incorrect or Invalid username/password" and similar errors when trying to login to the Scholar cluster and its services (Thinlinc, JupyterHub, Rstudio, OpenOnDemand, etc.)

The glitch has been corrected and accounts are propagating back, which can take 2-4 hours.
