Staff Printing Upgrade

Staff printing (printers.dundee.uni) will be upgraded on Tue 09 May between 15:00-15:30.

What impact will this have?
Staff will still be able to print during this period, but will not be able to install new printers to their Staff or Managed Desktop computers.

Why are we doing this?
The upgrade will see staff printing move to version 16.1, which will enable us to:

  • Remain in support
  • Support macOS Sierra (10.12) and Windows 10 (although the Edge browser is not supported yet)
  • Re-enable support for Chrome with a new extension
  • Improve admin roles for IT troubleshooting and maintenance purposes

If you have any questions about this work, please contact the IT Service Desk (ref 1075).
