The Unix interactive cluster (its.caltech.edu) will soon be retired. These long-running Solaris systems will be replaced by new Linux systems, which will run concurrently for a brief transition period. Starting May 2, 2016, IMSS will make changes to users' dot files to minimize compatibility issues with the new Linux systems.
As part of the ongoing campus network refresh project, IMSS has increased campus wireless network speed limits. Caltech BeaverNet and the Registered network are now almost twice as fast as previous speeds.
Effective Monday, April 15th, Caltech Help will be the new system for IMSS, Card Office, and Procurement service requests. Other campus service centers, including Human Resources, will soon join this system.
Effective Monday, February 25th, the Help Desk and Hardware Repairs will be located in Central Engineering Services (building 85). The Help Desk will be located in Room 204 and Hardware Repairs will be in Room 109.
FileSender, a service operated by Internet2, allows customers at member institutions to easily share large files (up to 1TB) at no cost. Caltech is a member institution so this service is available to all campus users with an access.caltech account.
