CLASSE Filesystem Listing

An automatically-generated list of all CLASSE filesystems available over Samba or NFS is now available at https://www.classe.cornell.edu/private/computing/filesystems.html . The default sorting is by "Linux Path," but if you have javascript enabled you can click on a column header to sort by that column.

If you would like assistance determining where to store your data or would like a new file system created, please submit a ServiceRequest .

RedRover-Secure retiring on July 15

On July 15, CIT will discontinue the RedRover-Secure wireless service. For more information, see http://itnews.cornell.edu/help-itcornell-get-message-out-redrover-secure-retiring-july-15.

For secure wireless service, please use eduroam instead: http://www.it.cornell.edu/services/wifi/. Eduroam is a global service that can also be used at other participating institutions.

Regular RedRover (not secure) will remain in place.

Autodesk Inventor in Wilson 315

The Wilson public terminal room (Room 315) currently contains four Windows systems dedicated to Autodesk Inventor use. Because of the upcoming Inventor upgrade, those systems would need a hardware upgrade. We are therefore considering reducing the number of Inventor systems in Wilson 315 from four to one. Please contact the IT group at service-classe@cornell.edu with any questions or concerns.

General network and server maintenance will occur every Tuesday from 12:00 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 12:00 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.

Questions or problems? Submit a service request.
