 +===== 2019-06-25: Status Imagine Premium/​Microsoft Azure Dev Tools =====
-===== 2018-10-04: Change Account Registration and Extension =====+Since Microsoft changed the name of the program from "​Imagine Premium"​ to "Azure Dev Tools for Teaching",​ they changed the requirements for registration to the program portal, too. As for now, an institute email address is required for registration. As newer students are not longer provided with one of these, only older students with an old address are able to register. Microsoft is working on a solution to this problem, but as for now, there is no workaround. So we cannot provide you with access to the program at the time-being.
-The creation and extension of accounts became 02.10.2018. converted to a new graphical system. It is used as an alternative to the well-known text terminal. +---- 
-Accounts and extensions in the main subject require a valid mail address (or s5 .., s4 .., ...). Please take care to avoid umlauts (ä, ö, ü, ß) when renewing or renewing the application. The password must consist of the following components:​ +====== 2019-06-24: Loss of central Storage at B-IT ======
-   At least one capital letter (A, B, C, ...) +
-   At least one lowercase letter (a, b, c, ...) +
-   ​At least one number (0, 1, 2, ...) +
-   At least one special character (except '​*'​) +
-   At least 10 characters long+
-Account extensions are usually in the period 01.11.-30.11. possible. Please note the warning via e-mail.+Last Friday around noon we experienced a total loss of several central components of our userstorage for UNIX (NFS) and Windows (SMB). Sadly we had to realize that we lost a rather important large storage component completely, so we had to recover ​the affected storage areas from our backup to alternative server systemsBecause of that, a certain loss of data in the confines of the regular backup schedule (usually daily in the night) has to be expected.
-For questionsproblems or errors please contact the GSG (room 0.014 / 0.009).+The data rescue operation is completed by nowall services were restored again.

-===== 2018-09-14Maintenance WiFi Networks ​=====+===== 2019-05-29New Host Keys login.bit ​=====
-Due to the continued problems with our core router, we are trying to take some load away from it by changing the routing configuration of our WiFi Networks to other componentsBecause of that you can expect some outages of the wifi throughout the day.+The SSH Login Server of the b-it was reinstalled and received new host keysIf you want to verify, please refer to the following fingerprints:​

We continue to work on a solution, utilizing our support contractor and the hardware vendor.+| SHA256:​xfo6iWzDsy0MwsKCX1qISP6Q7fuAmeDxlmZI3kiFX1g root@login2 | (ECDSA) |

 +Until the replacement ​of the eduroam-cs certificate within ITthe certificate specified [[en:​eduroam|here]] must still be used when connecting ​to eduroam-cs! ​We will have completed the conversion to the new CA within the next few days, so you can also use the new certificate within eduroam-cs, as stated in the HRZ newsletter. We will announce this accordingly here.

 +===== 2019-04-29: No Audio available in Room 0.107 =====
-===== 2018-09-03: Further problems with our central network routing components ===== +Because ​of a device defectthere is currently no audio available in room 0.107Please bring your own speakers or contact GSG for alternativesWe hope that the replacement amplifier will be installed during week 19.

-As the recent proceedings in patching up our central routers were not successful, we are continuing to experience massive problems with our core network, resulting in massive performance issues and complete blackouts of network connectivity. This problem is of a non-trivial naturewe are continuing to investigate the issue, utilizing our support partners and the hardware vendor itself. +
- +
-At the moment we seem to have pinned down the problem to the IPv6 core of the routerTo stabilize the situation as good as possible, we have disabled IPv6 routing ​for the time being, hoping to reactivate it after resolving the problem. +
- +
-Please continue to be patient and remember ​that the whole setup in this building is completely new, some problems simply were to be expected.+

 +===== 2019-04-16 11:45: Takeover of the regulated help desk operation =====
 +From now on, access to our IT Helpdesk in room ** 0.014 ** is open to all students and staff at regular core times. There, we are happy to answer your questions about the IT infrastructure and solve your technical problems.
-===== 2018-08-31: Maintenance window of central network routing components =====+The help desk is staffed at the following core times:

 +| Tue-Thu | 12-16 pm | 
 +| Fri | 12-14 pm | 
 +Please refrain from contacting our staff in other offices (except transponder matters) so that we can do our job properly.
-In the time between 7:30 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. we will update the central routing components. As a direct result there will be total network service outages during this period in the whole c.s. dept. and the b-it. We apologize for the inconvenience.

-===== 2018-08-28Outage of network connectivity ​=====+===== 2019-04-12 10:00: DNS resolver has been switched off =====
-We just experienced a breakdown of the central routing components of the c.sdept and b-it. the problem was corrected and we are investigating the cause.+The DNS resolver had been replaced by
-Thank you for your patience.+

-===== Commissioning ​the new print account =====+(We will return our temporary network​23 to the University 
 +Computing Center shortly.) 
 +Most machines (computers, printers, scanners, etc.) are configured by DHCP 
 +automatically and have switched already, We have told about others, that we 
 +had detected, to the colleagues in the work groups that manage them.
-The printing system known from the Römerstraße is online in a revised version since Monday, 06.08.2018Further information can be found in the tab "[[en:print | Print Services]]"​.+Should there still be machines that are manually configured to use 
 + by the users themselvesyou have to change the DNS resolver 
 +setting to the values shown above. However, as far as we can see, 
 +there are only a few left, that are already known to their 
 +administration. So the only problematic machines are such that were 
 +switched off for the last few days.
