IT Services is in the process of moving all McGill faculty and staff mailboxes and resource accounts from McGill’s central email server to Exchange Online. We're now about half-way through the university and expect to be completed by the end of August.
Please visit the IT Knowledge Base and familiarize yourself with these articles:
Please note that the Documentum Content Management System, which underlies CenterStage, Webtop and InputAccel applications, will be unavailable tonight Monday, June 20, from 9:00 pm to 10:00 pm for maintenance.
IT Services will be performing maintenance on the network switches in the areas below on Wednesday, June 22, 2016 from 6:00 am to 6:15 am. Users connected via wired or wireless network will lose connectivity.
Please note that there will be an update to McGill's wireless certificate on Thursday morning, June 16 at 5:00 am. After the update, the first time you connect to the wireless network on campus (wpa.mcgill.ca) and in residences (wpa.rez.mcgill.ca) you will be prompted to accept the new certificate on Windows, Mac and iOS (Android devices will not be prompted). Simply click Connect to continue. The screenshot shown here is an example from Windows 7; other system prompts may differ.
The Green Electronics Council has honoured McGill as a 3-Star EPEAT Purchaser, while the Sustainable Purchasing Leadership Council (SPLC) gave McGill, along with Harvard University and the University of Pennsylvania, an Outstanding Case Study award for its Sustainable Procurement Strategy.
As you know, faculty and staff mailboxes will be migrated to Office 365 very soon, where you will have 50 GB of mail storage space. Therefore, IT Services will be decommissioning the Evault archiving service for Faculty and Staff.
LinkedIn members recently received an email from LinkedIn regarding the developments stemming from the 2012 data breach. This is not a new security breach and affects only LinkedIn passwords that have not been changed since June 2012.
LinkedIn has taken immediate steps to invalidate the passwords of all LinkedIn accounts they believed might be at risk. Refer to the email from LinkedIn for more information.
