iGRasp – Essential Maintenance – 13 June 2019 (22:00 – 00:00 BST)

SABA/Lumesse (the providers of the iGRasp application) will be carrying out essential maintenance to the iGRasp environment on Thursday 13th June 2019, between 22:00 – 00:00 BST.

The result is that iGRasp will be unavailable during this time.

Service Unavailable – IDP (login to Box, etc.)

We are currently experiencing an issue with our IDP service, which is preventing users from logging in to some University systems, including Box.

Our supplier for this service, Overt, have confirmed an issue with one of their datacentres.

We are tracking this with reference number 1905-5351 and will update this message with progress.

Service Issues: Windows 7 Staff Desktop

We are aware of an issue with machines running Windows 7 Staff Desktop which is causing the performance of some machines to dip below acceptable levels.

We have implemented a workaround for this issue. If you still experience slowness, please reboot your PC. Rebooting the PC will pull down the changes we have made and expected performance will resume.

If you believe that your machine is affected by this issue please email help4u@dundee.ac.uk quoting reference number 1905-3754

New campus network certificate

Connected to our wired or wifi network on campus before? If yes, you accepted our network certificate the first time you did this on each of your personal and non-managed devices.

The time has come for this certificate to be renewed. It will be replaced on Thu 23 May.

Once this change is made, you may have to accept the new certificate on your devices when next connecting them to eduroam – expect to see a pop-up window appear and ensure you take action.

Some devices may not prompt at all (certain Android devices, for example) and the certificate will apply in the background without you noticing. Managed University desktops will be unaffected.

You will receive a direct email to your @dundee.ac.uk account shortly, which contains more detail.
