Antivirus Software Migration

As ITS finalizes the migration to a new Antivirus product, users may see the previous product (Trend Micro Apex One) display with a red icon in the taskbar (seen below). In this instance, the red icon indicates that the product has been uninstalled and will need a restart to complete the process. Users may do this at their convenience during the day, otherwise the process should complete overnight. If the icon persists, please call the Help Desk at 814-332-2755, or submit a ticket at WebHelpDesk.

Antivirus Software Migration

ITS is in the process of migrating to a new Antivirus platform called Carbon Black, which has been rolling out to all Windows devices over the last few days. You will notice the Carbon Black icon (example below) in the System Tray. Once the rollout is complete, ITS will remove the current Antivirus product, Trend Micro Apex One.

Issues with Campus Phone System

Representatives from LITS and Windstream are currently investigating intermittent issues with campus phones. Please do not unplug your phone, as this may cause it to become unresponsive. Users have reported that the display time is incorrect, but this should not otherwise affect functionality of the phone. Thank you for your patience.

E2Campus Notifications

An E2Campus password reset notification was accidentally sent out to users this morning as an unforeseen result of system maintenance. We have removed this message from all users’ inboxes, with the exception of those who had already opened it. E2Campus is a legitimate service that the college uses to alert it’s community and its notifications should not be marked as spam, and in this instance simply deleted. We apologize for the confusion.

A new look for Google sign-in screens on June 14th

Starting on June 14th, 2018, you may notice that when you sign in to your G Suite account, the screen looks slightly different. Some of the changes will include tweaks to the Google logo, an outline around the text field, and center alignment of all items on the screen. See below for before and after images.

Update: WiFi Issues with Apple devices

ITS continues to investigate WiFi connectivity issues related to recent updates for Apple devices. We have identified a fix, but implementing it will require some significant changes. Once we implement the fix, existing connections to AC-Wireless from Apple devices will be lost and users will be required to install a new configuration profile to reestablish their connection.

Stay tuned, more details on the timeline of this change will be available via MyAllegheny news posts.

New Apple updates causing issues with campus Wifi

The updates released late last week for iOS and Mac OS X have caused devices to cease functioning on our network (AC-Wireless). We are currently troubleshooting the problem and will provide additional updates here.

We ask that users refrain from installing these updates until we can resolve the issue.

Unplanned maintenance may cause disruptions

A small subset of our Windows users have experienced intermittent lockups and reboots over the last 24 hours. These symptoms are a result of unplanned maintenance on 3/12.

At this point the issue has been resolved, so please contact the InfoDesk if you continue to experience these symptoms.
