Holding off on iOS Maverick
Please DO NOT upgrade your SU iMLearning equipment to OS X Maverick just yet. You may experience some compatibility issues with the university's applications such as Blackboard until we are able to verify the new OS is compatible with all our current systems.
Apple just announced in their event today that OS X Maverick is available today via the Mac App Store
Please wait to upgrade until we are able to confirm OS X Mavericks is compatible with all SU systems. Once we are able to confirm compatibility, we will notify the SU community and make OS X Mavericks available via Self Service.
As many of you know, Secure Exam Browser was not working for Windows properly. The company who produces this software has updated their product and now SEB will function on Windows! Please go to the following Website and download the correct version of SEB, and follow the install instructions, for whatever windows operating system you are using.
Possible Limited Interruption Of Internet Access On Monday, 10/28
Cisco has issued a security warning and SU needs to update the firewall. The update is planned to start by 7:00a on Monday, October 28. There may be a limited interruption of Internet access to and from campus for the few minutes it takes for the firewall to update and reload.
We understand there is no good time to take the network down and every effort will be made to minimize the outage. IC staff are coordinating these upgrades to minimize the possibility of downtime.
