Maintenance will be performed on McGill's email infrastructure on Tuesday, November 26, from 9:00 am to 10:00 am. During this period there will be no disruption to email service. However, for anyone whose email address is changed or added during this period, there may be a delay in receiving email from outside McGill.
The McGill Software site (www.mcgill.ca/software) will be unavailable due to maintenance on Tuesday, November 23, 2013 for approximately 2 hours starting at 7 am.
On April 8, 2014, Microsoft will officially end support for Windows XP. In consequence, McGill IT Customer Services (ICS) will also stop supporting Windows XP at that time. Over the past year and a half we have been actively upgrading centrally-supported computers on campus to Windows 7, and we have encouraged LAN administrators in non-centrally supported units to do the same. To date 100% of all public computers and 81% of centrally-supported administrative computers have now been upgraded.
There will be a brief 10 to 15 minute interruption of VPN service on Tuesday, November 19 starting at 7:00 am.
- If you have already established a VPN connection before the maintenance begins, you should remain connected.
- However, you will not be able to start a VPN session during the maintenance period.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
