Adobe Reader removal from LEPP Windows PCs

After Adobe has been removed, if it is still configured as your default PDF viewer, you will need to run PDF-X-Change viewer once, and select "Yes" to the "Set as default" prompt or Windows will ask you what program to use to open PDF files...

Firefox update for LEPP Windows PCs

This will Update Firefox to 17.0.2, Java to 7u11 and Adobe Flash.

Migration to Cloud-based Office 365

The tentative date for migration of CLASSE's e-mail and calendaring services from Cornell's central servers to Microsoft;s cloud servers is Feb. 14. Happy Valentine's Day! You will have to make some minor changes, possibly before the migration, and certainly after. More information is available at http://www.it.cornell.edu/services/guides/facstaff_email/office365/migrate/pre-index.cfm and at http://www.it.cornell.edu/office365/after



General network and server maintenance will occur every Tuesday from 12 noon to 2:00 PM. The CLASSE-IT group will always announce any expected disruptions in our NewsLetter and via CLASSE-IT-NEWS-L, but with the size and complexity of our network there is always the potential for something to go wrong. We will do our best to contain all network maintenance and planned outages to Tuesdays from 12 noon to 2:00 PM.

Unless other arrangements have been made, CLASSE-managed Windows systems may be updated and rebooted on Tuesday morning at 2:00 AM, so please avoid critical or lengthy operations at that time. For more details, please see SystemExpectations.
